MAMMAPRINT & BLUEPRINT®

The MammaPrint® and BluePrint® genomic tests are used to uncover a breast tumor’s unique traits to help form a targeted treatment plan specific to each patient’s individual needs. MammaPrint® is used to determine the risk that a patient’s cancer will return. BluePrint® is used to determine which of the tumor’s genes are dictating the cancer’s behavior. When used together MammaPrint ® and BluePrint® uncover more tumor biology affording us a clearer picture for a more personalized treatment strategy.

DCISIONRT

The DCISionRT test combines the latest innovations in molecular biology with artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver the most advanced DCIS test available. DCISionRT is the first biological risk signature developed specifically for DCIS and the only test that predicts whether or not radiation therapy would be beneficial. Based on the biology of your DCIS, the DCISionRT test provides you and your physician the information needed to make a decision whether surgery alone or surgery with radiation therapy is appropriate.

BREAST CANCER INDEX

Breast Cancer Index (BCI) is a test that provides information to help women diagnosed with early-stage, hormone receptor-positive (HR+) breast cancer, and their oncologists make personalized decisions about extending anti-estrogen (also called hormonal or endocrine) therapy beyond 5 years.

Breast Cancer Index is a test that looks at your initial tumor sample to provide two pieces of information:

Whether an additional 5 years of anti-estrogen therapy is likely to help reduce your risk of the cancer returning (recurrence) as metastatic disease
Your individual risk of metastatic recurrence between 5 and 10 years after initial diagnosis, which is presented as a percentage risk [e.g., 3.2% or 7.5%]
