- Studies Presented at ASCO GI: American Society of Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium to be Used in Selecting Final Genes for

Colon Cancer Test -

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today announced the results of studies that have identified genes that could help predict the likelihood of recurrence and chemotherapy benefit for early-stage (stage II and III) colon cancer. The company is conducting detailed analyses of these studies to select a final gene set for a clinical assay to quantify the risk of recurrence and likelihood of chemotherapy benefit, which will be evaluated in an independent validation study.

Results of the studies were presented January 26, 2008 at ASCO GI, the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, in Orlando, Florida.

"These results allow us to conclude that quantitative gene expression using methods developed by Genomic Health can identify genes that may predict the likelihood of colon cancer recurrence and chemotherapy benefit," said Steven Shak, M.D., chief medical officer of Genomic Health. "This marks an important step in our effort to develop a test to personalize treatment decisions for early-stage colon cancer patients using the same rigorous clinical development and validation process as we did with Oncotype DX for breast cancer."

Both study reports used Genomic Health's quantitative RT-PCR to analyze RNA expression for 375 cancer-related and reference genes from colon tumors of patients who were treated with surgery alone or with surgery and adjuvant 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin (5-FU/LV) chemotherapy.
