TUMOUR - STROMA RATIO
The tumour-stroma ratio (TSR) is a diagnostic tool for overall and disease free survival in different epithelial cancer types. The TSR is easy to determine on H&E sections within 1-2 minutes.
The TSR is based on the amount of stroma present within the primary tumour. The parameter distinguishes between tumours with a high stroma percentage and low stroma percentage in two categories. To learn more about scoring the TSR, watch the instruction video.
The UNITED study protocol is published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research. The paper is available under the UNITED tab.
