MammaPrint classifies patients as either high risk or low risk of recurrence over a 10-year period while BluePrint classifies patients by breast cancer subtype.

The group recommends Myriad Genetics' EndoPredict, NanoString's Prosigna, and Genomic Health's Oncotype DX tests for guiding chemotherapy decisions if certain conditions are met.

At the conference, researchers presented data from a number of studies using molecular diagnostic tools to better characterize breast cancer recurrence and treatment outcomes.

In the I-SPY 2 trial, investigators analyzed whether MammaPrint scores and BluePrint subtypes could help identify patients who would respond better to treatments.

The new additions reflect data published this summer in the TAILORx trial, which speak to the chemopredictive ability of Genomic Health's Oncotype DX.

Under the terms of the deal, Beijing-based GeneCast has the exclusive right to market Agendia's MammaPrint and BluePrint tests to Chinese customers.

The company said it plans to use the financing to increase adoption of its MammaPrint BluePrint next-generation sequencing-based test kit for breast cancer.

Under the deal, Singapore-based Angsana Molecular & Diagnostics Laboratory will offer the two tests in markets including Singapore.

Unicancer will provide patients with centralized laboratory testing performed by Agendia, and also adopt the company's NGS kits for decentralized testing.
