ihc4: Function to compute the IHC4 prognostic score as published by...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

This function computes the prognostic score based on four measured IHC markers (ER, PGR, HER2, Ki-67), following the algorithm as published by Cuzick et al. 2011. The user has the option to either obtain just the shrinkage-adjusted IHC4 score (IHC4) or the overall score htat also combines the clinical score (IHC4+C)

Usage

1
ihc4(ER, PGR, HER2, Ki67,age,size,grade,node,ana,scoreWithClinical=FALSE, na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

ER

ER score between 0-10, calculated as (H-score/30)

PGR

Progesterone Receptor score between 0-10

HER2

Her2/neu status (0 or 1).

Ki67

Ki67 score based on percentage of positively staining malignant cells

age

patient age

size

tumor size in cm.

grade

Histological grade, i.e. low (1), intermediate (2) and high (3) grade.

node

Nodal status.

ana

treatment with anastrozole

scoreWithClinical

TRUE to get IHC4+C score, FALSE to get just the IHC4 score.

na.rm

TRUE if missing values should be removed, FALSE otherwise.

Value

Shrinkage-adjusted IHC4 score or the Overall Prognostic Score based on IHC4+C (IHC4+Clinical Score)
