( Nasdaq: GHDX) today announced multiple upcoming presentations at the 2014 Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) Annual Meeting, including the second large, independent clinical validation study of the Oncotype DX® prostate cancer test and results from the first prostate cancer decision impact study.
The results from the latest validation study of the test, conducted in collaboration with the Center for Prostate Disease Research, have been accepted for publication in European Urology. Separately, the results of the first decision impact study of the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test, conducted in collaboration with academic and community practices at Columbia University, Delaware Valley Urology and Orange County Urology, have been accepted for publication in Urology Practice, an official journal of the American Urological Association.
Additionally, Genomic Health will present results from its first liquid biopsy study assessing multiple technologies, including next-generation sequencing, for their ability to detect and analyze the presence of bladder cancer in urine. These results represent important progress in the development of a proprietary liquid biopsy platform. This will be the company's first report of results from two early feasibility studies in liquid biopsy, with another upcoming presentation about the detection of breast cancer in blood scheduled for presentation at the 2014 Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in December.
All SUO presentations will occur on Wednesday, December 3, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time at Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Rockville, Md. Additional details follow:
