Quarterly Highlights Oncotype DX Breast Cancer Commercial Progress

  • Established reimbursement contract with the Irish HSE National Cancer Control Programme, the country's public insurer covering approximately half the population of Ireland.  This coverage for lymph-node-negative, estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer patients makes Ireland the first European country to provide full public reimbursement for the Oncotype DX breast cancer test.  
  • Expanded reimbursement in the United Kingdom to include all major private payers, representing 15 percent of the country's population or approximately 10 million lives.
  • Established first reimbursement contract in France at a hospital in Clermont Ferrand.
  • Established distribution agreements to provide Oncotype DX in Argentina and Uruguay.  
  • Completed decision impact studies in Australia and British Columbia.

  • Oncotype DX Colon Cancer Commercial Progress

  • Palmetto GBA, the designated national contractor for the Oncotype DX colon cancer test, established a formal coverage policy for all Medicare patients effective September 18, 2011.
  • On track to deliver MMR testing for recurrence risk to stage II colon cancer patients and physicians by year-end.
  • Completed laboratory analysis of our gene identification study to predict the benefit of oxaliplatin chemotherapy in stage II and III colon cancer patients, using samples from the landmark NSABP C-07 study.

  • Product Pipeline, Peer-Reviewed Publications and Medical Meeting Presentations

  • Sixteen abstracts accepted for presentation at the upcoming San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium  December 6-10, including complete results from the DCIS clinical validation study; multiple international studies reporting on the impact of Oncotype DX on changing treatment decisions and cost effectiveness in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Ireland, Japan, Australia, Israel, Singapore, and Hungary; and the first clinical biomarker discovery study using next generation sequencing technology in fixed paraffin embedded tissue.
  • Results from five studies in breast and colon cancers presented at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress.
  • Researchers from Israel reported on use of the Oncotype DX breast cancer test in over 1,800 patients with node-negative breast cancer and described a wide range of Recurrence Score® biology across patient age, tumor size, and tumor grade. These results, presented at the ASCO Breast Cancer Symposium in September, reconfirmed that the underlying biology revealed by the Recurrence Score result could not be predicted from the traditional clinical and pathologic factors.
  • The Journal of Clinical Oncology published results of a meta-analysis of 1,735 patients from the landmark NSABP B-14 and ATAC breast cancer trials that demonstrated combining the Oncotype DX breast cancer Recurrence Score with traditional pathology and clinical measures (RSPC) can supplement the assessment of recurrence risk.  
  • The Journal of Clinical Oncology published results from the NSABP B-14 study of patients randomized to surgery alone, that demonstrated the value of the Oncotype DX quantitative estrogen receptor (ER) result as a predictor of tamoxifen benefit.
  • On track to finalize  prostate cancer assay parameters and algorithm with the goal of initiating a large clinical validation study in 2012.
