  • Unique value and practice-changing impact of the Oncotype DX test in breast cancer
  • Breadth of clinical evidence for the Oncotype DX test in colon cancer
  • Continued adoption and clinical utility of Oncotype DX across healthcare systems worldwide
  • Further evidence of the robustness of the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test

About Genomic Health

Genomic Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: GHDX) is the world's leading provider of genomic-based diagnostic tests that address both the overtreatment and optimal treatment of early stage cancer, one of the greatest issues in healthcare today. The company is applying its world-class scientific and commercial expertise and infrastructure to lead the translation of massive amounts of genomic data into clinically-actionable results for treatment planning throughout the cancer patient's journey, from screening and surveillance, through diagnosis, treatment selection and monitoring.  Genomic Health's lead product, the Oncotype DX® breast cancer test, has been shown to predict the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit as well as recurrence in invasive breast cancer and has been shown to predict the likelihood of recurrence in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).  In addition to this widely adopted test, Genomic Health provides the Oncotype DX colon cancer test, the first multi-gene expression test developed for the assessment of risk of recurrence in patients with stage II and stage III disease, and the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test, which predicts disease aggressiveness in men with low risk disease. As of December 31, 2013, more than 19,000 physicians in over 70 countries had ordered approximately 420,000 Oncotype DX tests.  The company is based in Redwood City, California with European headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
