TIME Magazine Names GeneSearch(TM) One of the Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs in 2007
Date:12/14/2007

WARREN, N.J., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Veridex, LLC, a Johnson & Johnson company, is pleased to announce that TIME magazine has named the GeneSearch(TM) Breast Lymph Node (BLN) Assay one of the top ten medical breakthroughs of 2007.

In the December 24th issue of the magazine, available today, TIME states: "Surgeons now have a faster way to assess whether breast cancer has spread." With GeneSearch(TM) BLN Assay, TIME goes on to say, "doctors can accurately test the sentinel node for metastases during the initial surgery by measuring molecular markers of breast cancer. If the test shows the presence of cancer, the physician can remove affected lymph nodes immediately, sparing women the wait and possible follow-up surgery."

GeneSearch(TM) BLN is the first intra-operative and gene-based test approved for use in the U.S. to detect the spread of breast cancer into the lymph nodes. The assay can detect the spread of cancer into the lymph nodes more accurately than existing rapid methodologies and, as a result, has the potential to reduce the need for stressful and costly second surgeries for breast cancer patients.

"Given that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. die from breast cancer annually, the demand for better medical care is extraordinarily high," said Pat Whitworth, M.D., director of the Nashville Breast Center and a principal investigator in the GeneSearch(TM) BLN clinical trials. "With this new molecular pathology test, we have an opportunity to improve the standard of care for women with this disease. Patients and physicians now can have a higher degree of confidence in their lymph node test results and, as a result, make more informed decisions about their treatment."

The GeneSearch(TM) BLN Assay is the first in vitro diagnostic test approved in the United States for the rapid detection of metastases greater than 0.2 mm in sentinel lymph node tissue removed from breast cancer patients. In clinical tr
