Advancing Breast Cancer Care: Breast Recurrence Score Test Market Estimated to Reach US$ 576.6 Million by 2033: Persistence Market Research

Increasing Prevalence of Stage II Breast Cancer and Growing Adoption of Diagnostic Kits Driving Breast Recurrence Score Test Market: Persistence Market Research

New York, July 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global breast recurrence score test market stood at US$ 216.8 million in 2022 and is forecasted to expand at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2023 to 2033. Genomic studies are playing an increasingly significant role in the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy for estrogen-receptor-positive (ER+) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer. The Oncotype DX breast recurrence score assay is the first globally available tool used in this context.

  • Breast cancer is a prevalent cancer in women worldwide, with over 2.3 million new diagnoses and more than 685,000 deaths in 2020, as per the World Health Organization.

Mortality rates have decreased due to earlier detection and improved adjuvant therapies. Chemotherapy can reduce breast cancer recurrence risk but its yields are small and variable. Genomic analysis of the primary tumor is crucial in deciding whether adjuvant chemotherapy is needed in early estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer patients.

Breast recurrence score (RS) assays help determine the chemotherapy benefits for early breast cancer patients.

  • The National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) has conducted several clinical trials over the last four decades. The trial results have significantly contributed towards reducing the extent of surgical procedures and improving the outcome of patients with early-stage breast cancer.
  • The NSABP B-14 trial showed lower distant recurrence rates in low-risk patients, while the NSABP-B20 trial showed significant benefits in high-risk tumors. The test generates a recurrence score between 0 and 100.

The breast recurrence score test can dramatically lower treatment rates and enhance decision-making for individuals who were previously considered to benefit only little from chemotherapy. Healthcare systems, particularly those with limited funding, are expected to gain from possible cost savings without affecting the outcomes of breast cancer patients.
