: The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) released its 8th edition of cancer staging implemented in early 2018. This study aims to compare anatomic staging (AS) with prognostic staging (PS) based on the updated AJCC 8th edition staging manual. A retrospective single-center analysis of 313 triple-negative breast invasive ductal carcinoma patients who received surgery at department of breast surgery in the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University from 01/2010 -12/2012 was performed. All cases were restaged using the AJCC 8th edition AS and PS system. The 7-year disease-free survival (DFS) and the 7-year overall survival (OS) rates were 76.30% and 78.27%, respectively. Applying the PS system, 277 (88.5%) patients of the AS groups were upstaged to the PS groups, 31 cases with IIIC and 5 cases with IV unchanged (11.5%) and no cases downstaged. Both 7-year DFS and 7-year OS were significantly different in the different AS and PS groups (all, p<0.001). The PS system was found to provide better prognostic information in patients with AS group IIB. A total of 43 patients with AS group IIB were upstaged by PS system, in which 30 patients were +2 upstaged to PS IIIB, and 13 patients were +3 upstaged to PS IIIC. PS IIIB and IIIC from AS IIB had significant differences in 7-year DFS (χ2=5.628, p=0.014) and 7-year OS (χ2=6.037, p=0.018). Both AS and PS systems proposed in the 8th edition of the AJCC breast cancer staging manual had prognostic value in TNBC. Moreover, the PS system predicts clinical outcomes of TNBC patients more accurately than the traditional AS system.

The authors investigated the clinical utility of the revised prognostic staging system proposed in the eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual in breast cancer (BC) patients. We retrospectively reviewed the data of 714 BC patients that received surgical treatment and standard adjuvant therapy from January 2005 to December 2007. All patients were restaged for anatomic TNM stage and pathological prognostic (PP) stage as defined in the revised eighth edition o...
Abstract Aims We aim to validate the AJCC 8th edition prognostic staging system for breast cancer in an Asian setting. Methods Clinico-pathologic information and cancer-specific survival (CSS) outcomes of 6287 stage I to III patients with invasive breast cancer who underwent upfront surgery at SingHealth institutions in Singapore from 2006 to 2014 were analyzed. Survival distributions for the different staging systems were estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method and compared using the log-rank test...

Purpose The new eighth edition TNM classification by the AJCC for breast cancer (BC) incorporates biologic factors and gene expression prognostic panels, in addition to traditional anatomic factors. In this study, we evaluated the prognostic value of this new staging system compared to the previous AJCC 7th edition staging system.

: BACKGROUND We compared pathological prognostic stage (PPS) with anatomic stage (AS) groups according to the updated version of breast cancer staging of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) 8th Edition. MATERIAL AND METHODS We evaluated 353 breast cancer patients initially treated with surgery. AS and PPS were performed by evaluating the pathological data of the patients according to the AJCC 8th Edition breast cancer updated version. Stages and survival rates between the 2 staging sys...

Abstract Background The new “prognostic stage” in the 8th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) incorporated important biologic factors such as estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2), histologic grade and TNM stage into one system. The objective of this study was to evaluate the “prognostic stage” in locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) based on the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) 18 database. Met...

This review describes the changes that have been implemented in the Tumor–Node–Metastasis (TNM)-based staging of breast cancers by the new, 8th editions of the relevant Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) publications. After giving a background for TNM being the common language of cancer staging and related activities like cancer treatment and registration, it summarizes not only the changes but reviews some highlights important for patholo...

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), characterized by the absence or low expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2), is the most aggressive subtype of breast cancer. TNBC accounts for about 15% of breast cancer cases in the U.S., and is known for high relapse rates and poor overall survival (OS). Chemo-resistant TNBC is a genetically diverse, highly heterogeneous, and rapidly evolving disease that challenges our ability to...
