Genomic Health Announces Upcoming Presentation of Four Oncotype DX® Studies Including New Validation on Its Ability to Predict Prostate Cancer-specific Death and Metastases

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today announced that results from four new Oncotype DX® Genomic Prostate Score™ (GPS) studies will be presented at the upcoming American Urological Association (AUA) 2017 Annual Meeting, which will be held May 12-16 in Boston. With new results reporting the performance of the GPS in assessing risk and long-term outcomes in patients across various stages of prostate cancer, GPS is now the only test to provide an assessment of the current state of a man's cancer via adverse pathology, as well as his individualized risk of developing metastasis or dying of prostate cancer within 10 years.

The poster discussions will include:

  • Results from a study performed using tissue samples from a patient database from Kaiser Permanente'sNorthern California region that examine GPS performance in predicting biochemical recurrence, prostate cancer-specific death and metastasis in patients with clinically low-, intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer who were treated with radical prostatectomy;
  • Results of a prospective, multi-site study that evaluated GPS as a predictor of adverse pathology in men treated with radical prostatectomy for clinically low-risk prostate cancer;
  • Interim results examining clinical utility from a study evaluating GPS impact on rates of active surveillance utilization and persistence; and
  • Results from a study conducted at six Veterans Affairs medical centers that compared treatment patterns before and after introduction of GPS to determine if the test improves risk stratification and the use of active surveillance.

Complete results of the studies will be presented as follows (all times are in Eastern Daylight Time) and abstracts are now available at

About the Oncotype DX® Genomic Prostate Score™
Designed by Genomic Health based on results from multiple studies led by Cleveland Clinic and the University of California, San Francisco, the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score analyzes 17 genes across four biological pathways from tumor tissue removed during biopsy to provide an individual score that, in combination with other clinical factors, further clarifies a man's risk prior to treatment intervention. The test enables confident treatment decisions to provide the opportunity for low-risk patients to avoid prostatectomy or radiation - and their side effects - while identifying men who need immediate definitive treatment.
