Genomic Health Announces Presentation of Multiple Oncotype DX® Studies at the 2016 CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, Reinforcing Value of Genomics in Precision Medicine

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: GHDX) today announced that it will present seven Oncotype DX® studies at the 39th CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), which is being held December 6-10, 2016. The study findings reinforce the Company's leadership in individualizing breast cancer treatment decisions and the value of the Oncotype DX test in various stages of the disease. Presentations include:

  • Results from a study based on the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the premier source of cancer statistics in the United States. The study assessed breast cancer-specific mortality in patients with poorly differentiated tumors who were treated based on their Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score™ results.
  • A gene discovery study conducted in collaboration with SWOG, an NCI cooperative group, that analyzed molecular predictors of early breast cancer outcomes, highlighting Genomic Health's leadership in using next-generation sequencing for gene expression analysis.
  • A comparison of the use of commonly available clinical predictive tools and physician estimates vs. the Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Score™ to determine ipsilateral breast event risks in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) post-lumpectomy.
  • A study design for an ongoing study evaluating the use of the Breast Recurrence Score results in patients with metastatic breast cancer at the time of first diagnosis.
  • A summary of the unprecedented amount of clinical outcomes evidence from more than 50,000 patients across multiple large studies.
  • A multi-center trial evaluating the use of Oncotype DX to select neoadjuvant therapy for early-stage breast cancer.
  • A decision impact study demonstrating the value of using Oncotype DX in eligible patients in France.

Complete results from the studies will be announced in accordance with the SABCS embargo policy. Following are details for each presentation (all times are in Central Standard Time):

About Oncotype DX®
The Oncotype DX® portfolio of breast, colon and prostate cancer tests applies advanced genomic science to reveal the unique biology of a tumor in order to optimize cancer treatment decisions. The company's flagship product, the Oncotype DX breast cancer test, has been shown to predict the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit as well as recurrence in invasive breast cancer. Additionally, the test predicts the likelihood of recurrence in a pre-invasive form of breast cancer called DCIS. With more than 700,000 patients tested in more than 90 countries, the Oncotype DX tests have redefined personalized medicine by making genomics a critical part of cancer diagnosis and treatment.
