Impact of Oncotype DX Test on Quality-Adjusted Life Expectancy and Costs in Patients with Stage II Colon Cancer In an independent study led by authors Neal Meropol, University Hospital Seidman Cancer Center and Case Western Research University; Gary Lyman, Duke University; and Rebecca Chien and John Hornberger, Cedar Associates, results showed that clinical use of the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score to assess risk of recurrence in T3 stage II colon cancers with intact mismatch repair (MMR-P) is likely to improve quality-adjusted life expectancy and be cost-saving from a societal perspective.
