Inivata to Present at AACR Annual Meeting 2017
Research Triangle Park, NC and Cambridge, UK, April 3, 2017 — Inivata, a global clinical cancer genomics company employing a revolutionary approach to circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) analysis to improve personalized healthcare in oncology, today announces the presentation of new data at the AACR Annual Meeting 2017 in Washington, USA.
The data, entitled “Comparison of enhanced Tagged-Amplicon Sequencing and digital PCR for circulating tumor DNA analysis in advanced breast cancer”, will be presented on Monday 3 April from 1:00pm – 5:00pm at the Convention Center. The poster will present the results of a new study showing ctDNA analysis using Inivata’s InVisionTM platform and Digital PCR (dPCR) have very a high concordance in mutation detection in patients with advanced breast cancer.
Clive Morris, Chief Medical Officer of Inivata, said, “These results add to our growing body of evidence for the clinical utility of our InVisionTM platform across a number of cancer types. While we have recently announced the results of a first study of the use of a ctDNA liquid biopsy in guiding treatment decisions and delivering better patient outcomes in lung cancer patients, here we explore the utility of ctDNA in breast cancer. These data demonstrate that while our InVision platform has strong concordance with dPCR in breast cancer patients, it also yields more clinically useful biomarker information through a broad panel approach over individual mutational analysis.”
Inivata, a clinical cancer genomics company, is employing the precision of ctDNA analysis to improve personalized healthcare in oncology. Using a simple blood test, ctDNA analysis is a new tool for oncologists to detect cancer, stratify patients, and assess individual response to treatment. Inivata’s proprietary technology is based on pioneering research from the Rosenfeld Lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK-CI), University of Cambridge. Inivata’s InVisionTM ctDNA assay provides a highly sensitive analysis of a highly-select gene panel to identify actionable mutations for oncologists to treat their patients optimally. In 2016, Inivata opened a CLIA lab in Research Triangle Park, NC and launched a large-scale, prospective clinical validation study of the Company’s ctDNA analysis in lung cancer.
