Oncotype DX® Prostate Cancer Assay
The Oncotype DX® Prostate Cancer Assay is a multigene genomic test that - based on the analysis of selected genes in tumor tissue sample from biopsy using RT-PCR method - predicts the aggressiveness of the disease. This test measures the expression of 17 genes across multiple key biological pathways in prostate cancer and thanks to that it can help predict the aggressiveness of the disease and provide more precise and individualized risk assessment beyond traditional clinical pathologic factors such as Gleason score or PSA.
The Oncotype DX® Prostate Cancer Assay 17- gene panel (12 cancer related and 5 reference genes) is highly predictive of adverse pathology. It includes 4 biological pathways and the following algorithm leads to the final Genomic Prostate Score (GPS).
