Agendia's MammaPrint(R) Included in 2008 Dutch Institute for Healthcare Improvement CBO Guidelines
Date:9/18/2008

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., and AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Agendia, a world leader in molecular cancer diagnostics, today announced that its signature breast cancer tumor recurrence test, MammaPrint(R), has been included in the updated 2008 guidelines of The Dutch Institute for Healthcare Improvement CBO. The CBO guidelines, which cover all areas of healthcare and have an important role to play in the improvement of the quality of patient treatment and care, were drafted in collaboration with the Dutch Association of Comprehensive Cancer Centers (ACCC) and the Dutch National Breast Cancer Consultation Group (NABON).

The inclusion of MammaPrint in CBO's updated clinical practice guidelines represents a significant step forward for the role of molecular diagnostics in breast cancer treatment planning. Specifically, the new guidelines acknowledge the prognostic power of MammaPrint in general and highlight its ability to identify subgroups of untreated node negative patients as having a good or poor prognosis. The test also allows physicians and patients to determine with which therapy, if any, to address each individual patient's risk profile, ultimately providing a significant benefit of more personalized medicine. The Dutch guideline committee also encouraged physicians to enter patients into the MINDACT trial to allow establishing additional knowledge.

"We are delighted that MammaPrint has been included in the CBO guidelines," said Bernhard Sixt, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Agendia. "With a very high accuracy, MammaPrint identifies patients who have a risk of developing metastases within five to seven years after surgery. Therefore, the test is a very powerful tool that allows physicians to assess the rationale of adjuvant chemotherapy, which has been shown to be effective in reducing these early events in a meta-analysis of studies that included 30,000 patients."
