The prospective TAILORx study was created to help to discover whether chemotherapy is beneficial for women with a mid-range recurrence score of 11 to 25, as well as to prospectively confirm that a low recurrence score of 0-10 is associated with a low rate of distant recurrence if patients receive endocrine therapy without adjuvant chemotherapy.

Once collected, the cells are armed with cancer-recognizing molecules so that when they are reintroduced into the patient's body they can home in on the tumors and kill them off.
