Genomic Health, Inc., a life science company, engages in the development and commercialization of genomic-based clinical diagnostic tests for cancer in the United States. Its clinical diagnostic tests for cancer enable physicians and patients to make individualized treatment decisions. The company's genomic test, Oncotype DX, is a clinical laboratory test that predicts the likelihood of cancer recurrence, the likelihood of patient survival within 10 years of diagnosis, and the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit. This test is focused on patients with early stage, node negative, or N&#8722;, and estrogen receptor positive, or ER+, breast cancer. Genomic Health is in the early development phase of investigating additional genes and gene combinations that may add to the predictive power of Oncotype DX; and in the early development phase for a product to predict the likelihood of recurrence and chemotherapy benefit in N&#8722; and ER&#8722; breast cancer patients, as well as taxane benefit. In addition, the company has products in various stages of development for other cancers, including colon cancer, prostate cancer, renal cell cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and melanoma. Further, it is in the early development phase to develop tests to predict the likelihood of response to the EGFR inhibitor class of drugs. Genomic Health has a collaborative agreement with Aventis, Inc. to investigate the ability of gene expression in fixed-paraffin-embedded tissues to predict the likelihood of response to adjuvant chemotherapy, including Taxotere, in patients with early breast cancer and zero to three involved lymph nodes. The company was founded in 2000 and is based in Redwood City, California.
