Biocept to Present at Molecular Medicine Tri-Con 2016
Date:3/3/2016

SAN DIEGO, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Biocept, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOC), a molecular diagnostics company commercializing and developing liquid biopsies to improve the detection and treatment of cancer, announces that Veena Singh, MD, Biocept's Senior Vice President and Senior Medical Director, will present "Ultra-Sensitive CTC Analysis in the Management of Cancer" on Monday, March 7th, and will participate in a panel discussion focused on the use of circulating tumor cell (CTC) in liquid biopsy on Wednesday, March 9th, at the Molecular Medicine Tri-Con 2016 meeting being held in San Francisco.

"First generation CTC detection systems were designed to capture only cells expressing an antigen found on epithelial tumor cells, known as EpCAM.  These approaches miss non-EpCAM expressing types of tumor cells, such as those with mesenchymal or stem cell properties, that can contain important tumor related information," said Dr. Singh. "At Biocept, we have developed a highly sensitive approach that can detect a broader spectrum of CTCs and simultaneously identify actionable biomarker alterations within these cells.  Our assays detect results that could be missed by relying solely on interrogating a subset of CTCs and provide additional information that physicians can use when making treatment decisions.

"The proprietary platforms we have developed at Biocept allows for liquid biopsy assays that utilize both CTCs and circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) for both profiling and monitoring patients with solid tumors," continued Dr. Singh.  "We appreciate the opportunity to share progress and evidence from our real-world experience with scientific leaders attending this prestigious industry conference.  Much of this conference is dedicated to liquid biopsy, which indicates a growing level of interest in our field among researchers, clinicians and the biopharma industry in general."
