Vermillion Supports First World Ovarian Cancer Day and Effort to Raise Awareness of the Need for Better Diagnosis and Treatment
Date:5/8/2013

AUSTIN, Texas, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vermillion, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRML), a molecular diagnostics company focused on gynecologic cancers and women's health, joins ovarian cancer organizations around the world in recognizing May 8 as World Ovarian Cancer Day

On this day, ovarian cancer organizations are uniting to educate their communities about ovarian cancer and its symptoms. For women living with the disease, and their families and friends, World Ovarian Cancer Day represents a global expression of solidarity in the fight against the disease.

"We commend the organizers of this First World Ovarian Cancer Day for bringing together 26 ovarian cancer organizations across 17 countries to generate greater awareness about this deadly disease," said Thomas McLain , Vermillion's president and chief executive officer. "Given the lethality of ovarian cancer and how often it goes undetected before it's too late, we need to increase public knowledge about its symptoms as well as the critical importance of early and appropriate treatment."

According to Ovariancancerday.org, every year ovarian cancer is diagnosed in nearly a quarter of a million women around the world, leading to 140,000 cancer-related deaths. In the U.S., out of the 22,000 women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, 81% are diagnosed as malignant only after the cancer had spread to other parts of the body (metastases). However, only one in three women with ovarian cancer are initially treated by a gynecologic oncologist, in part due to inadequate diagnostic tests and procedures. These statistics reveal how early detection and proper treatment by a gynecologic oncologist can be the key to survival.
