SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Sciences announced today that new data will be presented on studies
"Together the studies are establishing the clinical utility of the Epic platform to enable predictive medicine," said Ryan Dittamore, chief of medical innovation at Epic Sciences. "The breadth and impact of the data presented demonstrates the value of our product portfolio for the use in therapy selection, including deep insights into tumor heterogeneity and context of therapeutic resistance which isn't seen through tissue or other liquid biopsy techniques."
In partnership with the Duke Cancer Institute, a new study will be presented in an oral abstract titled "The PROPHECY trial: Multicenter prospective trial of circulating tumor cell (CTC) AR-V7 detection in men with mCRPC receiving abiraterone (A) or enzalutamide (E)," which investigated the validation of Epic's nuclear-localized AR-V7 test, now, on market as the Oncotype DX® AR-V7 Nucleus Detect™, in the context of patient outcomes.
Furthermore, new genomic instability biomarker will be investigated in the context of PARPi therapy outcomes in a poster discussion titled, "Phenotypic and genomic characterization of CTCs as a biomarker for prediction of veliparib therapy benefit in mCRPC."
