Recent Business Highlights:

Oncotype DX Commercial Progress

  • The American Medical Association (AMA) granted a test-specific Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for the Oncotype DX breast cancer test, making it the first and only test to meet Category 1 utilization and evidence requirements for risk of recurrence and chemotherapy prediction. 
  • Palmetto GBA, the designated national contractor for molecular diagnostic tests including the Oncotype DX colon cancer test, expanded its coverage policy for all qualified Medicare patients beyond stage II disease to now include select stage III A/B patients.
  • In Canada, established coverage for an additional 5 million lives with the BC Cancer Agency in British Columbia, bringing the total lives covered to more than 80 percent of the country's population.
  • The AGO (Gynecologic Oncology Working Group) in Germany updated guidelines to recommend Oncotype DX as the only breast cancer gene expression test to predict chemotherapy benefit in early-stage, hormone receptor-positive invasive breast cancer. 
  • Established first policy with a private insurer in Switzerland.
  • Established node-positive and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) breast cancer coverage for an additional 5 million lives in the United States through contracts with large Blue Cross Blue Shield state plans.

Pipeline, Presentations and Publications

  • Presented results from multiple Oncotype DX breast cancer studies at the 9th European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-9) in March that further support the increasing adoption of the test in Europe.
  • Presented four studies at the United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology's (USCAP) annual meeting in March including results from one of the largest male breast cancer genomic studies ever reported.
  • The Oncologist published positive results from an Oncotype DX colon cancer decision impact study demonstrating that Recurrence Score® results changed treatment recommendations in 45 percent of stage II colon cancer patients.
  • Received acceptance to present nine abstracts at the upcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting May 30 - June 3, including studies in breast, colon, prostate, and renal cancers.
  • Scheduled to present new information about the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test at the upcoming American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting May 16 - 21, including a physician-led symposium about the integration of the test into clinical practice.
