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

(Nasdaq: GHDX) today announced results of a multi-center Japanese study demonstrating that the Oncotype DX breast cancer assay had significant prognostic value in Japanese women with estrogen receptor-positive early-stage breast cancer.

"Based on these results, we believe that Oncotype DX should be integrated into standard breast cancer treatment planning for patients in Japan."

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
