U.S. Food and Drug Administration Clears Vermillion's OVA1(TM) Test to Determine Likelihood of Ovarian Cancer in Women with Pelvic Mass

gist for surgery. Numerous clinical practice guidelines recommend that women with ovarian cancer be under the care of a gynecologic oncologist. However, only an estimated one third of women who undergo surgery for possible ovarian cancer are referred to these specialist surgeons for their surgery.(1)

Vermillion received the Society for Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) Basic Science Poster Award for an abstract on the performance of its OVA1 Test presented at SGO's 38th Annual Meeting on Women's Cancer in 2007.

The OVA1 Test is the first FDA-cleared blood test to help clinicians determine whether to refer a woman to a gynecologic oncologist or have a gynecologic oncologist present at the time of surgery.

We look forward to collaborating to bring this new diagnostic option to the many women who will benefit from specialis
