May 14, 2009: Biodesix Announces VeriStrat(R) Data in Head and Neck Cancer to be Presented at ASCO
Date:5/14/2009

Data support proteomic test as a predictor of overall survival benefit with EGFRI treatment

BROOMFIELD, Colo., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Data on VeriStrat, a blood-based, proteomic test currently used for patients with advanced stage non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), will be presented by Christine Chung, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University on Monday, June 1st at the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Results from a 314 patient study indicate that VeriStrat is predictive of survival benefit in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) treated with epidermal growth factor inhibitors (EGFRIs). According to the data, VeriStrat provides information to help oncologists identify patients most likely to benefit from EGFRI therapy.

In the study, VeriStrat was used to classify outcomes in patients with SCCHN who were treated with gefitinib (G), erlotinib and bevacizumab (E/B), cetuximab (C), or palliative chemotherapy (PC). Gefitinib, erlotinib and cetuximab are EGFRIs with activity in SCCHN. Results from the study show that among patients treated with EGFRIs, VeriStrat predicted an overall survival benefit (G: p=0.007, HR 0.41; E/B: p=0.02, HR 0.20; C: p=0.06, HR-0.26). VeriStrat did not classify survival outcomes in patients treated with palliative chemotherapy (PC: p=0.76, HR 0.88).

"At present, there are no validated diagnostic tests to guide therapy selection for patients with SCCHN. Having a blood test that provides results which will help oncologists decide whether or not to treat head and neck cancer patients with anti-EGFR agents would be a major advancement in the treatment of this disease," stated Ezra Cohen, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago and a study investigator.

The data support previous study results in which VeriStrat effectively identified
