Rodrigo Goncalves, MD, postdoctoral fellow, Washington University School of Medicine, discusses the development of a standardized Ki-67 assay.
- Ki-67 assays are cheaper than molecular tests
- Measuring Ki-67 before treatment and 4-6 weeks into treatment can determine whether or not therapy is working
- In this trial, researchers stained slides in a standardized way and used computer software to analyze them
- Ki-67 measurement with the software was reproducible, though researchers were able to measure Ki-67 in the traditional way if needed
- Further trials are needed to verify this information
