Abstract

Purpose: Patients with breast cancer with Luminal-A subtype have a better prognosis but poor chemotherapy response. Chemotherapy is controversial in lymph node-positive patients with Luminal-A subtype. In this retrospective study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy and benefit of chemotherapy in the Luminal A-like subtype of breast cancer.
