Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.

PSS000038 Cases were ascertained by linkage to the California Cancer Registry and defined as pathologically-confirmed diagnoses of invasive breast cancers with positive/elevated ER expression on immunohistochemical staining. ER-negative cases and those with unavailable ER status were excluded. Excluded women self-identified as premenopausal, perimenopausal, or postmenopausal as a direct result of surgery or medical treatments, such as chemotherapy. Women on hormonal therapy or selective estrogen receptor modulators at the time of blood draw were also excluded. 102 individuals
