However, the case series under investigation were generally heterogeneous in terms of clinico-pathological stage and treatment, and the possibility that treatment may be a confounding factor that affects the identification of patients with indolent or aggressive disease should be taken in consideration in validating and/or translating these results into clinical practice.

In fact, absence of steroid hormone receptors is frequently (although not exclusively) associated with other unfavourable factors, such as rapid proliferation, expression of cyclins and downregulation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (CDKI), aneuploid DNA content, weak or absent bcl-2 expression as an indication of dedifferentiation, p53 accumulation, HER2/neu amplification/ 17 18 M.
