SUMMARY: 
The overall pCR plus npCR rate was 25 % (30/122). Stratified by BluePrint/MammaPrint, patients of HER2 type had the best response (59 %), while luminal A (7 %) and B (9 %) subtypes had the poorest. The pCR plus npCR rate in patients classified with PAM50 assay was 76 % in HER2 type, 10 % in luminal A type, and 5 % in luminal B type.
