- Results of International Multi-Center Study Consistent with Suite of U.S. and European Clinical Studies Evaluating Oncotype DX -

Researchers evaluated tumor samples from 200 patients with early-stage, estrogen receptor-positive, lymph node negative breast cancer, who were treated with tamoxifen, and who had surgery between 1992 and 1998. The Oncotype DX breast cancer assay was performed on all individual tumor specimens and the continu
