Abstract

The current paper presents novel diagnostic tests for breast cancer. OncotypeDx is the clinically validated multi-gene assay for early-stage breast cancer that quantifies the likelihood of distant breast cancer recurrence to assist in treatment planning and predicts the magnitude of chemotherapy benefit. GeneSearch is the objective test system for breast cancer lymph node analysis, a viable alternative to current intraoperative techniques. CellSearch is an advanced diagnostic platform for the analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Circulating tumor cells analysis provides valuable diagnostic information for predicting progression-free survival and overall survival earlier than the current standard of care.
