Abstract

The relation between oestrogen receptor status of primary breast cancer as determined immuncytochemically on fine-needle aspirates and the response to tamoxifen therapy has been assessed in 52 patients. The proportion of cells staining correlated well with the likelihood of response, which emphasises the importance of tumour heterogeneity.
