REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today reported financial results and business progress for the quarter ended June 30, 2008.

Total revenue increased to $27.8 million in the second quarter of 2008 compared to $14.7 million in the second quarter of 2007. Product revenue from the Oncotype DX(R) breast cancer assay was $26.3 million in the second quarter of 2008, an increase of 81 percent compared to $14.6 million in the second quarter of 2007, the result of continued growth in adoption and reimbursement. Contract revenue was $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared to $135,000 in the second quarter of 2007, reflecting continued collaboration with pharmaceutical partners to explore the development of tests for predicting benefit from certain targeted therapies.

"We believe the increasing impact of personalized medicine and our investment in Oncotype DX are reflected not only in our strong revenue and growth in tests delivered, but also in the narrowing of our net loss in the second quarter," said Randy Scott, Ph.D., chairman and chief executive officer of Genomic Health. "While we work to further reduce our net loss, we will continue to invest in our product pipeline and expand our commercial efforts outside of the United States, which we expect to be important components of future growth."

Updated 2008 Outlook and Financial Guidance

The company is providing the following revised guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2008:
-- Increasing expected test results delivered to 38,000 to 40,000 test

results, from previous guidance of 34,000 to 37,000 test results.

-- Projecting total revenue in a range between $105 million and $110

million, compared to previous guidance of $100 million to $110 million,

with an expectation that full-year revenue may be at the higher end of

this guidance.

-- Continuing to expect net loss of $15 million to $20 million for 2008,

with the net loss narrowing in the second half of 2008 as compared to

the first half of 2008.

Recent Highlights and Accomplishments

Physician Usage and Adoption

-- More than 9,690 test results were delivered in the second quarter of

2008, compared to more than 5,750 test results delivered in the second

quarter of 2007.

-- More than 18,850 test results were delivered in the first half of 2008,

compared to more than 11,200 test results delivered in the first half

of 2007.

-- More than 65,000 Oncotype DX test results have been delivered to

patients.

Peer-Reviewed Publications and Medical Meeting Presentations

-- The Journal of Clinical Oncology published a study online showing that

the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score provides additional prognostic

information in patients with early-stage breast cancer beyond that

derived from Adjuvant! Online, an online tool that evaluates clinical

variables to help physicians and patients assess the risks and benefits

of getting additional therapy after surgery.

-- Two abstracts were accepted for presentation at the ASCO Breast Cancer

Symposium in September of 2008.

-- The Journal of Clinical Oncology published results of a study

demonstrating the utility of Oncotype DX in measuring quantitative gene

expression for ER and PR status, indicating that quantitative RT-PCR,

as performed in the Oncotype DX breast cancer assay, is a reliable

method for determining hormone receptor status in breast cancer.

-- Presented results from two initial studies with collaborators that

could lead to the development of new tests for predicting benefit from

certain targeted therapies in cancer, at the 2008 ASCO meeting in June.

Reimbursement Progress for Oncotype DX

-- In June, Palmetto GBA, the company that will replace National Heritage

Insurance Company (NHIC) as the Medicare administrative contractor,

posted local coverage decisions for its jurisdiction that included

Oncotype DX. This coverage decision follows the identical criteria

previously set forth by NHIC. We expect to begin processing claims with

Palmetto in September of 2008.

-- Gained coverage for over 6.9 million additional lives for access to

Oncotype DX.

o Blue Cross Blue Shield plans of Louisiana, Mississippi and

Northeastern Pennsylvania established policies covering approximately

2.3 million lives.

o Group Health Incorporated and HIP Health Plan of New York established

policies covering approximately 4.6 million lives.

Product Pipeline

Breast Cancer

-- Targeting inclusion of quantitative HER2 scores in all Oncotype DX

reports by the end of 2008.

-- Conducting a study using Oncotype DX in breast cancer patients treated

with aromatase inhibitors with the goal of reporting results this year.

-- Received first trial specimens for our clinical validation study, which

we expect to begin in the second half of 2008.

-- Received milestone payment from Bristol-Myers Squibb related to Genomic

Health's program to identify genes to predict response to cetuximab

(Erbitux(R)).

Other Cancers

-- Established collaborators and identified sources of clinical samples

to further our prostate and lung cancer programs.

-- Began gene identification work to develop a prognostic test for

patients with renal cell carcinoma, clear cell type, under the Pfizer

collaboration announced in January of 2008.

International

-- Initiated a study supporting Japanese investigators as they gain

clinical experience with Oncotype DX for early-stage breast cancer

patients.

-- Processing samples from patients in Canada, Ireland and Peru enrolled

in the National Cancer Institute-sponsored TAILORx study, which has

expanded internationally.
