Depression and anxiety are common complications and are exacerbated by the prospect of chemotherapy and the potential for tumour recurrence. A newly developed MammaPrint Prescreen Algorithm (MPA) to identify patients eligible for the 70-gene profile has allowed ~60% of early-stage breast cancer patients to forego chemotherapy due to greater confidence in long-term survival. The need to monitor health outcomes in breast cancer patients and obtain prospective data has been identified as an important priority.||URI:||https://www.researchgate.net/publication/317309935_SASOP_Biol ogical_Psychiatry_Congr ess_2013_Abstracts
