Miraca Life Sciences Announces Significant American College of Gastroenterology Tradeshow Plans

IRVING, Texas (PRWEB) September 18, 2013

Miraca Life Sciences, the leading pathology services provider that collaborates to make patients and practices better, today announced that it will have a significant presence at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG tradeshow), the annual scientific meeting for GI professionals October 11 – 16th in San Diego, CA.

In addition to participating in the Exhibitor Hall, Miraca will be offering an informative presentation on Meaningful Use compliance for the first 100 participants in the Exhibitor Theater on Tuesday, October 15th at 1:40 pm. At this presentation, Miraca will help GI physicians advance their workflow efficiency toward full EHR integration and offer guidance on forthcoming regulatory concerns to successfully attest to Meaningful Use requirements.

Visitors to Miraca Life Sciences’ booth, # 1015, can learn how to leverage MMR IHC testing to identify patients at risk for having Lynch Syndrome. Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC), also known as Lynch syndrome, is an inherited cancer that predisposes patients to the development of colorectal, endometrial, gastric, upper urinary tract, and other cancers. Visitors to booth # 1015 can learn how to evaluate tumors for the characteristics common to individuals with HNPCC/Lynch syndrome which include microsatellite instability and loss of protein expression of one or more of the genes associated with HNPCC/Lynch syndrome.

"Miraca has a responsibility to doctors and patients to deliver reliable, meaningful laboratory results because effective patient care stems from accurate interpretation and diagnosis, so we'll be introducing a number of exciting innovations," said Dr. Amy Noffsinger, Medical Director for Miraca Life Sciences.

In addition, seven abstracts submitted by Miraca Life Sciences’ pathologists to the American College of Gastroenterology were accepted for posters. The posters that will be presented at ACG by Miraca Life Sciences this year include:

  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis is Associated with an Increased Prevalence of Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Intestinal Spirochetosis is Associated with Diarrhea, Weight Loss, and Abdominal Pain in Less Than Half of the Infected Subjects: A Study of 447 Patients and 1.2 Million Controls
  • Esophageal Eosinophilia and Gastric Mucosal Pathology: Is There a Link?
  • Unexpected Candidiasis in the Endoscopically Normal Esophagus
  • Helicobacter negative Chronic Active Gastritis is a Distinct Nosologic Entity, Not Simply Missed Helicobacter Infection
  • Low Prevalence of Colon Polyps in Patients with Diarrhea and Microscopic Colitis
  • Gastric Pathology in HIV-Infected Patients

"Miraca understands every biopsy represents a patient apprehensively awaiting an answer, and Miraca believes every patient deserves the right answer. The right answer is more than a diagnosis; it is specific, accurate, sophisticated, and actionable medical information derived from collaboration by the best subspecialist pathologists," said Dr. Noffsinger. "Our 'customer first' approach is the real driver behind our innovation, and we're very excited about the many opportunities we have to showcase our new solutions in 2013."
