Pathwork Tissue of Origin Test Validation Study Published in Journal of Clinical Oncology
Date:3/30/2009

tic, poorly differentiated or undifferentiated. The test demonstrated 88% positive percent agreement (akin to sensitivity) and greater than 99% negative percent agreement (akin to specificity) with available diagnoses. Although the JCO paper only reported results for frozen tissue samples, a separate validation study performed by Pathwork with FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded) specimens showed similar performance. Both the frozen and FFPE versions of the test are commercially available as a service through Pathwork Diagnostics Laboratory.

The paper published in the American Society of Clinical Oncology's journal was authored by Federico Monzon, M.D., Director of Molecular Diagnostics at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. Dr. Monzon's results showed that the test should become a valuable complement to currently available diagnostic methods for tumors with uncertain origins. The abstract can be read online at http://jco.ascopubs.org/ and the full paper is available for download on www.pathworkdx.com.
