What is an abstract?
An abstract is a brief summary of a research article, thesis, review, conference proceeding, or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject and is often used to help the reader quickly ascertain the paper’s purpose. The abstract can convey the main results and conclusions of a scientific article but the full text article must be consulted for details of the methodology, the full experimental results, and a critical discussion of the interpretations and conclusions.

Çakar B, et al. (2018) The Impact of Subtype Distribution in Inflammatory Breast Cancer Outcome. European Journal of Breast Health, 14(4), 211-217. doi: 10.5152/ejbh.2018.4170.

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) has an unfavourable prognosis despite the advances made in the treatment of breast cancer. Our study aimed to define immunohistochemistry-based surrogate subtype distribution to determine whether the breast cancer subtype accompanied survival outcome differences in IBC.
Our study put forth that IBC have a poor prognosis irrespective of breast cancer surrogate subtype distribution. Luminal A, the most frequent subtype of breast cancer was the least common in our IBC patient group. TNBC had the worst outcome when compared to other breast cancer subtypes.
