  1. Estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor and HER-2 status were derived from the gene array data. Cut-points were 8.2 for the estrogen receptor, 11.2 for HER-2, and 4.5 for the progesterone receptor. Log2 transformed gene array data have been used.
  2. 1The hormone receptor status is positive when either the estrogen or progesterone receptor RNA expression is high.
