The aim of this review is to evaluate the incorporation of genomic testing in international guidelines (North American and European) in different clinical settings. Based on this review, it seems that North American and some European countries have initiated a shift towards a more personalised medicine approach with multigene assays included in guidelines. This review covers several multi gene assays including MammaPrint®, Oncotype DX®, Endopredict®, and PAM50.
