In response to continued advances in genomic technology and genetic medicine, the
National Institutes of Health
(NIH) has developed the Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), a free online resource, to provide physicians, researchers and patients with detailed and accurate information about genetic and genomic tests. Comprehensive scientific and clinical information about the Oncotype DX
breast cancer test is now incorporated in the GTR database, representing
leadership in applying genomic information to make cancer care smarter.
"Over the last decade, in partnership with many collaborators, we have demonstrated that the rigorous validation of genomic information can transform cancer treatment," said
, M.D., chief medical officer,
. "As new discoveries about the human genome continue to inspire medical innovations, we are proud to share the breadth of our clinical evidence to showcase how world-class science can be translated into a practice-changing test like Oncotype DX."
