We then tested the cDNA from 50 pathology-positive metastatic breast cancer lymph node samples and 27 healthy or nonrelevant disease lymph node samples, respectively.
Here performance can be measured either in terms of precision and recall (which, in turn, refer to relevance), or by means of a decision-theoretic model which attributes different costs to the retrieval of relevant and nonrelevant documents.

In our opinion, the proposed method will find applications in the following areas: (a) to distinguish between clinically relevant and nonrelevant concentrations of PSA mRNA, the latter possibly occurring because of illegitimate transcription (28); (b) to provide information about the relation of PSA mRNA concentrations and recurrent disease after surgery; (c) as a powerful research tool in the study of the biology of prostate cancer and the metastatic process; and (d) PSA may be a new favorable prognostic indicator in female breast cancer, as has been found in recent years (29-32).
Within the confines of lexical similarity the test sets do provide a broad sample of query-document comparisons and are representative of the highly nontrivial task of separating the relevant from the nonrelevant documents.
