Agendia Launches Social Media Campaigns to Help Breast Cancer Patients with Chemotherapy Decisions
Date:5/23/2013

of tests, to determine if they actually need to undergo these often debilitating and costly treatments. We believe that ultimately the extension of that knowledge via social media educational resources will spare thousands of women the unnecessary toxic effects of chemotherapy, and will spare society the burden of administering ineffective treatments"

Genomic testing looks at the activity of groups of genes within tumor tissue to provide a more comprehensive view of the specific cancer. Agendia's MammaPrint® genomic test (part of the Symphony panel of tests) can, for example, determine if a woman with early stage breast cancer is definitively at low risk or high risk of recurrence. According to the recently published RASTER study, 97% of women identified as low risk by MammaPrint® and who chose not to have chemotherapy were disease-free at five years. 

About Agendia:

Agendia is a leading molecular diagnostic company that develops and markets paraffin-based (FFPE) genomic diagnostic products. Agendia's breast cancer Symphony suite was developed using unbiased gene selection, analyzing the complete human genome, ensuring 100% definitive results for cancer patients. Together, the Symphony tests help physicians determine a patient's individual risk for metastasis, which patients will benefit from chemo, hormonal or combination therapy, and which patients can instead be treated with less arduous and less costly methods. www.agendia.com
