Breast cancer subtype does not predict response to radiotherapy

Breast cancer subtype failed to predict response to radiotherapy after breast conservation surgery, according to an analysis of data from the Swedish Breast Cancer Group 91 Radiotherapy trial. However, subtypes showed a trend toward certain effects. Radiation reduced risk for breast cancer death among triple-negative tumours, whereas HER-2-positive tumours appeared the most radio-resistant.
