Abstract

Evidence is strengthening for the morphological evaluation of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in breast cancer. Herein, the concepts for TILs assessment are laid out by pathologists to facilitate their wider evaluation and consistent interpretation. The goal of this article is to promote the evaluation of TILs as a biomarker in research, clinical trial settings and day-to-day practice.
