Cynvenio Biosystems to Present Clinical Data on Mutational Analysis of LiquidBiopsy® Tumor Samples at the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting

Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

Cynvenio Biosystems, Inc., a cancer diagnostics company focused on the molecular analysis of tumor biomarkers derived from whole blood, today announced that clinical data from two research collaborations in breast and prostate cancer will be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting 2013 taking place May 31-June 4, 2013 in Chicago. These data highlight the company’s progress in the molecular analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTC) by next generation sequencing.

The breast cancer study was completed with Fox Chase Cancer Center and the Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The prostate cancer study was completed in collaboration with the Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

Both studies demonstrate the feasibility of sequencing CTC populations isolated by LiquidBiopsy to discover disease-associated mutations. The potential of this approach is to monitor patients frequently over their entire cancer care cycle to determine the most appropriate treatment, measure response to therapy and, ultimately, screen the population for disease via a simple blood draw.

"These two studies further demonstrate the importance of applying new technology to the molecular analysis of cancer," said André de Fusco, president and CEO of Cynvenio Biosystems, Inc. "In oncology, as in all fields, better decisions are based on frequent analysis of the most up-to-date information - not less - and our goal is to place this capability within reach of every doctor and patient."

The schedule for poster presentations by Cynvenio Biosystems and its collaborators is:
