For each biomarker, an intensity threshold strategy is applied which incorporates pathologist-assisted, mathematical models to determine optimal expression levels as a function of image background characteristics. Normalization methods have been developed to adjust for variable tumor content between patient samples. The H&E and IF analyses generate several hundred tumorspecific features which are then evaluated using a univariate concordance index with respect to outcome and their association with known, perceived biological function.
