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

ials with more than 300 patients in the U.S. that compared performance of GeneSearch with commonly performed intra-operative test procedures, GeneSearch correctly identified 95.6 percent of patients who had metastases in their lymph nodes. This high accuracy in finding metastases was statistically superior to the most commonly performed intra-operative test procedure. The new, gene-based technology of the GeneSearch allows for the analysis of 50 percent of the sentinel node, versus five percent of tissue typically examined under a microscope for evidence of cancer cells. Test results from GeneSearch(TM) can be produced in 35 to 40 minutes during the initial surgical procedure versus two to three days with tissue pathology.

"Too often, women who have had breast cancer surgery are forced to return for a second operation to remove lymph nodes," said Peter Blumencranz, M.D., medical director, Breast Health Services, Morton Plant Mease Healthcare in Clearwater, Florida. "The GeneSearch(TM) BLN test has the potential to change that by more accurately guiding decisions during surgery, in real-time, thereby reducing the risks, stress, emotional trauma and costs of second surgeries."

Given its level of accuracy, GeneSearch has the potential to prevent the need for costly and traumatic second surgeries for as many as 5,200 additional breast cancer patients in the U.S. each year. (1)

"In the five months since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved this test, a growing number of surgeons have become familiar with GeneSearch(TM) BLN and requested information and training so that they can begin to offer it to their patients," said Ken Berlin, general manager, Veridex LLC. "The accolades from Time magazine are further evidence of the important role this test can play in the treatment of women with breast cancer, and it reinforces our belief that GeneSearch(TM) BLN will enhance the standard of care for the estimated 200,000 women in the U.S. who u
