Title:
Diagnosis of pathological complete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer by minimal invasive biopsy techniques. 
Abstract:
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) is widely used as an efficient breast cancer treatment. Ideally, a pathological complete response (pCR) can be achieved. Up to date, there is no reliable way of predicting a pCR. For the first time, we explore the ability of minimal invasive biopsy (MIB) techniques to diagnose pCR in patients with clinical complete response (cCR) to NACT in this study. This question is of high clinical relevance because a reliable pCR prediction could have direct implications for...    »
