Data Published at ASCO Find Correlation Between ChemoFx(R) Assay and Significantly Improved Overall Survival in Patients With Ovarian Cancer
Date:5/20/2008

d 2003, and received at least one course of chemotherapy. The study evaluated differences in OS between patients who received treatment that was deemed responsive, intermediate-responsive or non-responsive based on ChemoFx test results.

Of the 206 patients analyzed:

-- Median OS of Assay non-responsive patients was 39.2 months

-- Median OS of Assay intermediate-responsive patients was 62.5 months

-- Median OS of Assay responsive patients was 80.4 months

When accounting for cancer stage and debulking -- the reduction of tumor size due to surgery or radiation treatment -- overall survival was significantly associated with the ChemoFx Assay and the cancer stage. In the model simulating improved survival if patients were treated with a therapy that caused a greater tumor response, median OS of patients treated with an Assay non-responsive drug could be improved from 39.2 to 62.5 months and median OS of patients treated with an Assay intermediate-responsive drug could be improved from 62.5 to 101.3 months.

"People with cancer often require additional treatment after receiving the standard of care chemotherapy. ChemoFx Assay can provide valuable information that could spare the patient from unnecessary toxicity associated with a potentially ineffective treatment," said Sean McDonald, CEO Precision Therapeutics. "The goal of ChemoFx is to empower patients and physicians with additional diagnostic information to help determine the most appropriate course of therapy for each individual patient."

This retrospective, multi-center analysis is a published abstract at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in Chicago and is available at http://www.asco.org.
