  2. 2. Senology Newsletter http://www.senology.org/newsletter/Newsl_May2011.htm Comment "Ki-67 for further classification of triple negative breast cancer", Bhumsuk Keam, Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea "Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) demonstrates poor prognosis because of aggressive tumor biology and lack of targeted agents. TNBC with high Ki-67 was associated with a more aggressive clinical feature despite a higher pCR rate. Ki-67 can be used for further classification of TNBC into two subtypes with different prognosis. Our report suggests that TNBC with residual disease and high Ki-67 expression should be a candidate for additional postoperative treatment such as platinum-based chemotherapy, or clinical trials specifically testing novel therapies in order to improve the outcome for this high-risk group of patients. In addition, TNBC with high Ki-67 should be followed-up more frequently within 3 years to guard for any recurrence" (Comment on: Keam B et al.: "Ki-67 can be used for further classification of triple negative breast cancer into two subtypes with different response and prognosis", Breast Cancer Res. 2011 Mar 2;13(2):R22.
