Abstract

Prediction of clinical behaviour and treatment for cancers is based on the integration of clinical and pathologic parameters. Recent reports have demonstrated that gene expression profiling provides a powerful new approach for determining disease outcome [3, 4, 6]. Although the studies showed the ability to predict disease outcome based on gene expression data, they also revealed a limited accuracy in the derived predictions. This may not be surprising,
