DiagnoCure's GCC marker for the staging of colorectal cancer discussed at the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group
Date:7/2/2008

QUEBEC CITY, July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - DiagnoCure Inc. (TSX: CUR), a life sciences company commercializing high-value cancer diagnostic tests and delivering laboratory services, announced today that Dr. Timothy J. Holzer, Vice President, R&D and Production at DiagnoCure, and Dr. Scott Waldman, from Thomas Jefferson University, were speakers on June 29, 2008, in Boston, Massachusetts, in a session at the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), one of the largest clinical cancer research organizations in the United States. Dr. Holzer and Dr. Waldman discussed with members of the GI (gastro-intestinal) committee about the importance of DiagnoCure's GCC mRNA molecular marker in the staging of colorectal cancer.

Dr. Holzer presented research data on "Molecular Detection of Colorectal Cancer Lymph Node Micrometastasis". His presentation featured a statistical review and discussion of the beneficial role of GCC in the staging of colorectal cancer. Dr. Waldman discussed his discovery and recently completed clinical studies about the significant staging role of GCC in colorectal cancer in a talk entitled "Molecular Approaches to Individualized Management of Cancer".

GCC is expressed only in intestinal mucosal cells, but not in extra-intestinal tissues. In addition, GCC is expressed in colorectal tumors, but not in other cancers outside the gastro-intestinal tract. Therefore, GCC may be useful clinically for the management of patients with colorectal cancer in providing more accurate information about lymph node metastasis to physicians and patients and influencing treatment decisions.

Staging a patient with colorectal cancer is crucial because it determines the patient's course of treatment. Current standard of care requires that pathologists examine microscopically a thin slice of tissue from each of 12 or more lymph nodes harvested during the patient's surgery to see if cancer has spread beyond the intest
