Agendia to Provide Testimony at Public Meeting on FDA Oversight of Laboratory-Developed Tests
Date:7/15/2010

IRVINE, California, and AMSTERDAM, July 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Agendia, a world leader in molecular cancer diagnostics, announced today that company CEO Dr. Bernhard Sixt will provide testimony at a public meeting on July 20 in Washington D.C. on the federal regulation of laboratory developed tests (LDTs).

Dr. Sixt will present in Session II, "Oversight of LDTs: Clinical Laboratory Challenges."

As the nation's leading authority for patient safety, Agendia believes that only the FDA can regulate the
