Date:3/14/2012

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everist Genomics (EGI), a rapidly-growing personalized medicine company, today announced the launch of the world's first comprehensive companion diagnostics and prognostics portfolio to improve early diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with colorectal cancer.

The portfolio of four individual tests provides innovative gene expression profiling and analysis of molecular markers to help physicians track tumor development and responsiveness to therapy, enabling personalized treatment across all stages of colorectal cancer.  

The tests will be available to U.S. customers starting at the end of March, which is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

"Advances in molecular diagnostics and genomics have revealed that colorectal cancer is not a single disease with just a single risk factor," said Peter Lenehan, M.D., Ph.D. EGI's Chief Medical Officer. "In fact, it presents a high degree of variance at the molecular level that can significantly determine a patient's individual prognosis."

The company's portfolio is comprised of four unique companion diagnostics:

  • OncoDefender-MMR assists physicians in assessing prognosis and defining optimal treatment for colorectal cancer (CRC) patients at all stages of the disease
  • OncoDefender-CRC is the world's first molecular diagnostic test to assist physicians in identifying early-stage colorectal cancer patients likely to benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy
  • OncoSelector is a companion diagnostic for patients who have tested positive with OncoDefender-CRC. OncoSelector assists physicians
