Genomic Health Expands Offering to Prostate Cancer Patients with Launch of Oncotype DX® AR-V7 Nucleus Detect™ Test to Predict Treatment Response in Metastatic Disease

New Liquid Biopsy Test Helps Physicians Select Most Effective Treatment, Prolonging Lives of Men with Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: GHDX) today announced the U.S. commercial launch of the Oncotype DX® AR-V7 Nucleus Detect™ test. The first and only liquid biopsy test of its kind, the Oncotype DX AR-V7 Nucleus Detect test was developed by Epic Sciences to help prolong the lives of men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) by accurately detecting a splice variant of the androgen receptor protein (AR-V7) in the nucleus of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). Knowledge of a patient's AR-V7 status enables physicians to confidently decide whether men treated with an androgen receptor-signaling inhibitor (ARSI) therapy, such as enzalutamide and abiraterone, need to start another type of ARSI or switch to chemotherapy.
