Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score (GPS) Test

  • A genomic test measures the expression of genes within a sample of tumor tissue.1
  • The Oncotype DX GPS test is a genomic test, and the results can help determine how aggressive the patient’s cancer is.1
For patients who have been recently diagnosed with low-, intermediate-, and high-risk prostate cancer and have not yet begun treatment, the Oncotype DX GPS test might be appropriate to help inform your management decisions. The GPS assay is not intended for men with advanced prostate cancer.1
