Published: Friday, May 05, 2017



Phil Febbo, MD, chief medical officer, Genomic Health, discusses the impact the Oncotype DX Genetic Prostate Score (GPS) has on patients with clinically low-risk prostate cancer.

As the interest in active surveillance continues to grow, the question becomes choosing patients who are the best candidates, explains Febbo. GPS will help choose who is the right patient to go on active surveillance.

If a patient goes on active surveillance they receive a score to determine their individualized risk of having aggressive disease.
