Biocept and Academic Collaborators to Present Poster at ASCO on Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs)
Date:6/2/2011

SAN DIEGO, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Biocept, Inc. today reported that its scientists and academic collaborators will present a poster at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) taking place in Chicago, Illinois June 3-7. The poster presentation is based on studies performed utilizing Biocept's proprietary OncoCEE™ (Oncology Cell Enrichment and Extraction) technology platform for the capture, detection, enumeration and analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs).  OncoCEE™ enables not only CTC enumeration but also biomarker analysis, such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) performed on the CTCs, as demonstrated in this study of HER2 (Human Epidermal growth factor Receptor-2) analysis in 54 patients diagnosed with late stage metastatic/recurrent breast cancer.

Farideh Bischoff, PhD, Vice President, Translational Research at Biocept, said, "The data we are presenting not only addresses our ability to capture CTCs in patient samples using a cocktail of antibodies, but also to perform FISH for HER2 gene amplification on the intact CTCs.  Further, we show that CTCs are heterogeneous, like the tumors that shed them, and are potentially comprised of different populations.  For example, while concordance was generally very high between HER2 results on tumor tissue and CTCs, certain patients that are HER2+ by tissue evaluation could have HER2+ or HER2- CTCs, and even in those that had HER2+ CTCs, typically all were not positive.  The opposite was also true – certain HER2- patients by tissue analysis were shown to have HER2+ CTCs.  We think these results could have important clinical implications for patients."

A second presentation, published as an abstract, involved collaborators from MD Anderson and USC, and focused on CTCs in ovarian and colorectal cancer.  Key findings were that CTCs lacking cytokeratin (CK), an important CTC
