Dr. Bowen is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. She was first author and presented a poster at the ASCO meeting in 2012, "Evaluation of Variables that May Impact Chemotherapy Administration after Determination of Oncotype DX Recurrence Score Results."
This study analyzed the use of the Oncotype DX assay in a large group of GCS patients with early stages of breast cancer (788 eligible patients across the practice). It also analyzed the circumstances under which the test was ordered, and how the test results were utilized in making chemotherapy treatment decisions.
The analysis demonstrated that Oncotype DX results are being used appropriately in guiding treatment recommendations for GCS patients, thus confirming the utility of the Oncotype DX test in our practice.
“Cancer patients often have a very positive attitude and outlook, which I admire.” -Dr. Bowen
