Abstract (Eng)

Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in women. The course and efficiency of breast cancer treatment are influenced by several factors. The expression of HER-2 protein and HER-2 gene is gaining in strength in breast cancer management. The aim of our study was to compare the course of HER-2 positive with HER-2 negative disease. In median time of 2.5 years DFS (disease-free-survival) of patients with HER-2 positive tumours was 76.1%, and 93.4% for patients with HER-2 negative disease. HER-2 status was the strongest prognostic factor for DFS (p<0.001) in the multivariate model, ranking before nodal status, PR status and age of patients. We may conclude that patients with HER-2 positive disease have worse survival regardless ofnodal status.
