Agendia Presents Broad Array of Predictive and Prognostic Studies on Breast and Colorectal Cancers at ASCO 2010 Annual Meeting
Date:6/4/2010

HUNTINGTON BEACH, California and AMSTERDAM, June 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Agendia, a world leader in molecular cancer diagnostics, today announced that researchers from Agendia and leading academic centers in the U.S. and Europe will present data from multiple studies concerning Agendia's assays MammaPrint(R), BluePrint(TM), and ColoPrint(TM) at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, June 4 - 8, 2010, at McCormick Place in Chicago. MammaPrint, the company's lead product, is the only FDA-cleared breast cancer recurrence test. FDA clearance requires clinical and analytical validation and full transparency to ensure patient safety issues are addressed. The company anticipates launching its prognostic colon cancer test ColoPrint in late 2010.

The study results underpin the broad predictive and prognostic power of MammaPrint and highlight prospective and independently validated data on ColoPrint. Visitors can meet the Agendia team in booth #18018 and study results will be discussed at the following sessions:

About MammaPrint(R)

MammaPrint is the first and only breast cancer recurrence test cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA clearance under the in vitro diagnostic multivariate index assay (IVDMIA) guidelines requires clinical and analytical validation and reporting systems to ensure patient safety issues are addressed. Highly accurate, MammaPrint identifies patients with early metastasis risk - patients who are likely to develop metastases within five years following surgery. Several authoritative studies have shown that chemotherapy particularly reduces early metastasis risk. In planning treatment, the MammaPrint test results provide doctors with a clear rationale to assess the benefit of chemotherapy in addition to other clinical information and pathology tests.

All MammaPrint tests are conducted in Agendia's CAP-accredited and CLIA compliant service laboratories.
