Oncocyte (NYSE American: OCX), a molecular diagnostics company with a mission to provide actionable answers at critical decision points across the cancer care continuum, is presenting new prospective data on DetermaRx(TM) at the IASLC 2020 North America Conference on Lung Cancer taking place on October 22. Gavitt Woodard, M.D., assistant professor, Yale School of Medicine, and lead author on the study is presenting the data at the event hosted by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer. Per the update, DetermaRx is a treatment stratification test that identifies stage I-IIA non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) patients at high-risk of recurrence despite ostensibly curative surgery, who may benefit from the addition of chemotherapy. Medicare reimburses the test, which has seen rapid adoption in its first year of launch across 70 hospitals, including National Comprehensive Cancer Network (“NCCN”) and National Cancer Institute (“NCI”) centers. “We are very pleased that the initial data showing this test’s impact on cancer recurrence was maintained in the 250-patient expanded data set. This result establishes DetermaRx as the post-surgical treatment standard for patients diagnosed with NSCLC,” said Dr. Edgardo S. Santos, M.D., Florida Precision Oncology, a division of Genesis Care and an early adopter of the test. “The integration of testing for targeted therapy, including EGFR mutation status and chemotherapy selection by DetermaRx on the same sample, will enable oncologists to optimize and sequence treatment post-surgery. In my opinion, these two tests together close the few remaining gaps that we currently face in deciding adjuvant therapy for early-stage adenocarcinoma of the lung. With these results, I would feel confident initiating chemotherapy, followed by targeted therapy for the EGFR-positive, DetermaRx high-risk patients I see in my practice.”
