Inivata Highlights its InVisionTM ctDNA Assay for Broad Molecular Profiling and Presentation of NSCLC data at ASCO Annual Meeting 2016
Date:6/1/2016

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina and CAMBRIDGE, England, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

 

Inivata, a global clinical cancer genomics company employing the precision of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) analysis to improve personalized healthcare in oncology, will introduce its proprietary InVisionTM ctDNA assay for broad molecular profiling during the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology ('ASCO') at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, June 3-7, 2016.

The InVisionTM assay utilizes the innovative application of Inivata's proprietary enhanced tagged-amplicon sequencing (eTAm-SeqTM) platform for genomic analysis, which was developed by Inivata on the basis of the TAm-SeqTM technology from the Rosenfeld Lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK-CI), University of Cambridge.  InVisionTM was developed to serve as a reliable, multi-gene, support tool for oncologists to accurately translate genomic alterations into actionable information to inform clinical decision making and improve cancer treatment planning for the patient. Commercial availability of the InVisionTM assay will be the subject of a future announcement.

At ASCO, clinical data from the InVisionTM assay in non-small cell lung cancer is being co-presented with Institut Gustave Roussy. The following abstract will be presented during the poster session:


Abstract Title: Evaluation of liquid biopsies for molecular profiling and monitoring in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. (Abstract #: 11533)
Location: Poster Session: Tumor Biology, Hall A, Board Number 230
Date/Time: June 6th, 1:00 - 4:30pm
Presenter: Jordi Remon, MD
Author affiliations: Institut Gustave Roussy and Inivata

Inivata's representatives will also be exhibiting and providing further details on the impending commercial launch of the InVisionTM assay at the ASCO annual meeting booth number 6161. To arrange an interview or meeting please contact us via info@inivata.com
