First urine-based cancer mutation monitoring test available from Trovagene
Date:10/1/2013

monitoring system," said Mark Erlander, Ph.D., chief scientific officer for Trovagene. "Traditionally, the mutation status of a tumor is determined using a tissue sample – a method that has limited practicality for patient monitoring due to costs, tumor heterogeneity and potential complications from the biopsy process. The ability to detect the mutation signal in cell-free DNA isolated from urine overcomes this limitation and meets a significant technical and clinical need."

The cell-free BRAF mutation assay has been tested across a range of solid tumors including melanoma, non-small cell lung, rectal, and colon cancers, indicating that urine-based mutation detection is applicable across many cancer types.  Additional clinical studies are ongoing to further understand the full range of clinical applications for this and other Trovagene assays.

"This first assay represents a significant milestone for Trovagene," said Antonius Schuh, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Trovagene. "Moving forward, our goal is to apply our technology for improved monitoring of tumor dynamics, leading to more effective management of cancer patients."

Trovagene has detected the BRAF V600E mutation in a variety of cancers, with   high levels of sensitivity and strong concordance with tissue biopsy. Further expansion of the company's monitoring capabilities will include additional mutational markers with known clinical utility, as well as known genomic alterations that indicate resistance to therapy.

The Trovagene cell-free BRAF test is now available to healthcare providers for patient testing.  Physicians interested in utilizing this test should contact Client Services at 888-391-7992. For more information, please visit www.trovagene.com/BRAF
