Genomic Health Presents Results From First Clinical Decision Making Study of Oncotype DX® Colon Cancer at the 2012 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium
Date:1/20/2012

res broader patient access to the test;
  • Launched MMR testing for recurrence risk that allows physicians to identify the approximately 15 percent of stage II colon cancer patients with MMR-deficient tumors, who have low recurrence risk and thus may be more appropriately considered for observation following surgery; and
  • Continued ongoing studies including a Mayo Clinic Cancer Research Consortium Clinical Trial to prospectively assess the impact of the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score on adjuvant therapy decision-making for stage II colon cancer patients, and a large gene identification study for prediction of oxaliplatin benefit in stage II and III colon cancer patients.
  • The 12-gene colon cancer Recurrence Score assay was developed using data from 1,851 patients in four large, independent studies conducted with the NSABP and Cleveland Clinic. "Effect of Oncotype DX colon cancer test results on treatment recommendations in patients with stage II colon cancer: Preliminary results" (Abstract #398) will be presented during the poster discussion session on January 21, 12:30 – 2:30 p.m.

    Four leading medical specialty societies co-sponsor the three-day, multidisciplinary symposium, including the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO).
