About Oncotype DX(R)

Oncotype DX is the first diagnostic multi-gene expression test commercially available that has clinical evidence validating its ability to predict the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence, the likelihood of breast cancer survival and the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit. Oncotype DX has been extensively evaluated in multiple independent studies involving more than 3,300 breast cancer patients, including a large validation study published in The New England Journal of Medicine and a chemotherapy benefit study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. To date, nearly 7,000 physicians have ordered more than 40,000 tests, and health plans covering over 50 percent of U.S. insured lives provide reimbursement for Oncotype DX through contracts, agreements and policy decisions. The American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) recommends the use of Oncotype DX for patients with node-negative breast cancer that is estrogen-receptor positive and/or progesterone-receptor positive.
