Study of Pathwork Diagnostics' Tissue of Origin Test Published in the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics: Investigates Test Reproducibility in Multiple Labs to Determine Primary Tumor in Cancer Cases
Date:12/14/2007

en laboratories. Overall concordance between laboratories in terms of final tissue of origin calls was 93.8%.

"As a result of the study, we concluded that the Pathwork Tissue of Origin Test is a robust assay that produces consistent results in diverse laboratory conditions reflecting the pre-analytical variations found in the everyday clinical practice of molecular diagnostics laboratories," explained Catherine I. Dumur, Ph.D., of Virginia Commonwealth University, lead author of the manuscript.

"This test has the potential to be an effective aid in the diagnosis of cancer patients presenting with poorly differentiated and undifferentiated tumors," commented Dr. Monzon, now at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX.

Note: The Pathwork Tissue of Origin Test is not cleared by the FDA for sale in the U.S. It is for Investigational Use Only.
