Select the type of primary tumor (estrogen positive or negative) from the menu on the left. Select how far you think the tumor might have spread by moving the slider. Predicted recurrences are seen as changing colors on the “Human Display”.
Click the "Abstract Map" tab at the top of the applet and repeat the selections of primary type and extent of disease to see how recurrence is modeled as an expanding ellipse in the functional map.
This model explains about two-thirds of the variance in the first 1000 recurrences in the ATAC clinical trial (p <0.0001). (Gray Vaidya Houghton Baum 2003.
