Study Description

Brief summary:

One-step Nucleic Acid Amplification assay (the OSNA assay) (Sysmex, Kobe, Japan) was an objective molecular technique that combines node tissue homogenization and subsequent reverse-transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification of CK-19 mRNA in a single quick step. In the study, the performance of the OSNA assay was compared with the present standard histological evaluation, and a comparative analysis of OSNA assay with Touch Imprint Cytology (TIC) was also been made.

  • Condition or Disease:Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
  • Intervention/Treatment: Device: The OSNA assay
  • Phase: N/A
Detailed Description

Patients: More than 1000 consecutive breast cancer patients scheduled for Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) were enrolled in the study. The study was approved by the ethics committee of each center and each patient provided informed consent. The patients who had undergone previous ipsilateral axillary surgery were excluded from this study. Sampling method: Sentinel Lymph Node (SLN) was defatted after SLNB. If the node weighed less than 100mg, the node was only assessed by histology postoperatively. If the node weighed more than 100mg, the node was sliced to equal blocks according to the length of short axis: If the length was less than 4mm, the node was sliced into two blocks along the long axis (a, b). Intraoperatively, the block a and b were tested by TIC, and the block a was prepared for OSNA. Postoperatively, the block b was assessed by histology. If the length was more than 4mm, the node was sliced into four blocks (a, b, c, d). Intraoperatively, all blocks (a, b, c, d) were tested by TIC, and the block a and c were prepared for OSNA. Postoperatively, the block b and d were subjected to histology. ALND was only performed if the TIC results were positive. OSNA assay: All the assay operators attended a three-day-training course before the study. OSNA assay was performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. Three different calibrators with defined CK-19 mRNA copy concentrations were used to construct a standard curve on Sysmex RD-100i instrument. Then, node tissues were homogenized in 4ml homogenizing buffer Sysmex LYNORHAG. Afterwards, the homogenate was briefly centrifuged and directly used as a template for RT-LAMP. Amplification of CK-19 mRNA was automatically performed in SysmexTM RD-100i instrument with a ready-to-use reagent Sysmex LYNOAMP kit which consists of a primer-nucleotide-mix, enzymes and CK-19 mRNA calibrators as well as positive and negative controls. All the results were presented on the RD-100i instrument in qualitative categories [++, +, -] and further specified by CK-19 mRNA copy number/μl: ~250 copies [-], 250~5000 copies [+], and 5000~ [++]. The result [+] was comparable to the presence of a micro-metastasis, and [++] to a macro-metastasis. Histological evaluation: All node blocks used for histological evaluation were fixed in 10% buffered formalin and paraffin embedded. Four 4~6μm thick slides 200μm apart were taken from each block. Metastases larger than 0.2mm were considered positive in this study. Metastases were classified according to the 7th criterion of American Joint Cancer Committee. Macro-metastases (≥2mm) and micro-metastases (0.2~2mm, pT1mic) were considered node positive. Isolated tumor cells [≤0.2mm, ITCs, pT0(i+)] were considered node negative. All the slides were reviewed by a senior pathologist from another center. When there was a disagreement, a third senior pathologist was attended to make the final diagnosis. All the pathologists were blinded to the OSNA results. Statistical methods: The primary goal was the accuracy, sensitivity, specificity of the OSNA assay. McNemar test was performed to compare the rate between groups.
