A value of information analysis of research on the 21-gene assay for breast cancer management.
The authors aimed to quantify the value of conducting further research to reduce decision uncertainty in the use of the 21-gene assay Oncotype DX (21-GA). They found that current evidence strongly supports the use of the 21-GA in intermediate- and high-risk women and recommended that further research focus on low-risk women.
