Date:7/27/2011

ors (cervical vs. ovarian). "Thought leaders in the field and our physician customers have provided us valuable input regarding essential tumor types for molecular classifiers. We are pleased that CancerTYPE ID can address their diagnostic challenges," said Mark Erlander, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of bioTheranostics. "Target therapies for metastatic cancers require precise knowledge of both tissue origin and underlying pathways. Our product provides critical information as a part of cancer management."

bioTheranostics also announced that CancerTYPE ID is now a covered benefit for Medicare Part B patients following a coverage determination by Medicare's administrative contractor Palmetto GBA. "This coverage decision was based on a review of the evidence supporting the analytical validity, clinical validity and clinical utility of CancerTYPE ID, making it one of the few molecular cancer tests supported by a Medicare coverage decision," Ding said. "It's another milestone in the history of bioTheranostics as we continue to improve existing products and bring additional high medical value products to market."
