The expression of tumour promoter gene S100A4, metastasis suppressor gene nm23, oestrogen and progesterone receptors and tumour grade and size have been investigated for their potential to predict breast cancer progression. The molecular and cellular data have been analysed using artificial neural networks to determine the potential of these markers to predict the presence of metastatic turnout in the regional lymph nodes. The relative expression of S100A4 and nm23 genes is the single most effective predictor of nodal status. This could aid the clinician in determining whether invasive procedures of axially node dissection can be obviated and whether conservative forms of treatment might be appropriate in the management of the patient.
