Specialised Therapeutics Australia Partners with Genomic Health Inc. to Deliver Novel Genomic Test to Breast Cancer Patients
Date:1/7/2014

th early stage breast cancer have endured debilitating chemotherapy regimens as a precautionary measure. This test will arm women and their physicians with more information about the likelihood of the patient benefitting from chemotherapy, as well as recurrence, helping them make a well-informed treatment decision."

Developed by U.S. based Genomic Health, Oncotype DX has been evaluated in 15 clinical studies in more than 6,000 patients. These studies include a large validation study published in the New England Journal of Medicine1 and a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology that examined whether Oncotype DX could predict the benefit of chemotherapy.2 Since becoming available in 2004, more than 400,000 Oncotype DX tests have been requested by more than 19,000 physicians in over 70 countries.

The Oncotype DX Breast Cancer Test is appropriate for recently diagnosed women with Stage I or II node-negative, oestrogen-receptor-positive, HER2 negative, invasive breast cancer; and postmenopausal women with node-positive, hormone-receptor-positive, HER2 negative, invasive breast cancer. The Oncotype DX results are provided in the form of a Recurrence Score®, a number between 0 and 100, which correlates to a specific likelihood of breast cancer recurrence within 10 years of initial diagnosis and the likely benefit of chemotherapy.

The Oncotype DX DCIS Breast Cancer Test is also appropriate for women with newly diagnosed pre-invasive or Ductal Carcinoma in Situ of the Breast (DCIS) who are treated with local excision, with or without adjuvant tamoxifen therapy. The DCIS Score™ result predicts local recurrence of DCIS or invasive carcinoma and helps inform decisions regarding the need for additional treatments, like radiation, following surgical removal of the tumour.
