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.
Also in the Leiden University Medical Center we have now started to include patients! Hopefully more institutes will follow shortly!
We are very happy to announce that the first patients of the prospective study have been included! Congratulations to Dr. Petrusevska and her team from Macedonia!
