I am wondering the range of oncotype scores. They say the scores go up to 100 but most of the highs I have heard referenced are in the 30s..are there people who have scores in the 40 and up range?

my Magee caculates to around 17.

Even if I put in the lowest possible grade 3/9, 300 each for Er/Pr, and 1 ki67, it only gets down to around a 7 for my 1.1 cm tumor. There must be something else that comes up with the ultra low oncotype score.

Dx at 51 after a preventive mx that wasn't. Oncotype dx 3. 3D tattoos from Vinnie! PTSD?? You are not alone!

The Magee formula is a very simplified version of the Oncotype score. The Oncotype score has 16 inputs and 5 reference genes. Some are unfavorable factors that serve to increase the score, while others are favorable and decrease the score.

I posted this earlier in this thread:



farmerlucy, your cancer cells may have had a really strong presence of GDTM1 and BAG1, whatever they are. Or maybe a high Bcl2 or SCUBE2. Those are the genes that lower the score, in addition to having high ER and high PR.

Yeah, I'm thinking it was the SCUBE2. Happy
