Recent Business Highlights
Oncotype DX Commercial Progress
- The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) incorporated the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score in its recently published Eighth Edition AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. Representing a rigorous, multi-disciplinary assessment, the updated criteria identify Oncotype DX as the only multi-gene test with Level I evidence to be used by pathologists and clinicians for formal staging of breast cancer patients.
- Established additional coverage for the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score, bringing the total number of U.S. covered lives to more than 65 million.
- Knappschaft, one of Germany's largest public health insurance funds, began offering Oncotype DX to early-stage breast cancer patients through an exclusive agreement, bringing the total number of German private covered lives to nearly 9 million.
Presentations and Publications
- Received acceptance to present results from a large Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score validation study, conducted in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente Northern California, at the Genitourinary (GU) Cancers Symposium, the European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress and the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting. With these new data, Oncotype DX is the first and only genomic prostate test validated in all major short- and long-term endpoints, including adverse pathology, biochemical recurrence, metastasis and prostate cancer specific death.
- Investigators from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and Epic Sciences Inc. published findings in European Urology demonstrating that only nuclear localization of the AR-V7 protein in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patient blood samples is predictive of therapeutic benefit. Genomic Health expects to begin offering the Oncotype DX AR-V7 Nucleus Detect test this year.
- Presented results from multiple studies demonstrating the unparalleled value of the Oncotype DX test in individualizing breast cancer treatment decisions for patients with various stages of the disease at the 2016 CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Presentations included two overviews of prospective outcomes data and clinical evidence supporting use of the test in both node-positive and node-negative disease.
- The Journal of the National Cancer Institute published results of an NSABP-led study demonstrating the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score is an independent predictor of locoregional recurrence risk in node-positive breast cancer patients treated with chemo-endocrine therapy.
- The Journal of the National Cancer Institute published results of an additional analysis from the second clinical validation study of the Oncotype DX DCIS Score demonstrating its ability to identify women with low risk of recurrence following surgery who can avoid radiation therapy.
- The European Journal of Surgical Oncology published a UK decision impact study of node-negative and node-positive breast cancer patients demonstrating the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score significantly reduced the use of chemotherapy and can lead to significant cost savings for the National Health Service (NHS).
- Received acceptance to present four Oncotype DX studies at the upcoming Miami Breast Cancer Conference and 15 Oncotype DX studies at the upcoming St. Gallen Breast Cancer Conference in March.
