Agendia to Showcase Robust Clinical Research at SABCS 2020 Emphasizing Need for Diversity of Data to Treat Breast Cancer Patients

Share

Agendia, Inc., a world leader in precision oncology for breast cancer, announced today that it will present new data from ongoing clinical research evaluating the MammaPrint® and BluePrint® genomic tests at the upcoming 2020 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS 2020), taking place virtually December 8-11, 2020.

These data, which build upon existing clinical research that demonstrates the efficacy of MammaPrint and BluePrint testing to consistently inform optimal treatment planning, highlight Agendia’s many trials in progress that will ultimately impact patient treatment and outcomes.

Specific data selected for poster spotlight discussions include:

  • BluePrint performance in predicting pertuzumab benefit in genomically HER2-positive patients: a biomarker analysis of the APHINITY trial
    Authors: Krop, I., et al.
    Session: Spotlight Poster Discussion 3 | Wednesday, December 9, 2020 | 6:30pm – 7:30pm CST
    Poster #: PD3-01
  • 5-year outcomes in the NBRST trial: Preoperative MammaPrint and BluePrint breast cancer subtype is associated with neoadjuvant treatment response and survival
    Authors: Whitworth, P., et al.
    Session: Spotlight Poster Discussion 9 | Thursday, December 10, 2020 | 3:30pm – 4:45pm CST
    Poster #: PD9-01

In addition, Laura van’t Veer, PhD, co-founder and Chief Research Officer at Agendia, will be giving an oral presentation on an abstract entitled “How low is low risk: MINDACT updated outcome and treatment benefit in patients considered clinical low risk and stratified by genomic signature, age and nodal status.”

“The MammaPrint and BluePrint assays give patients with breast cancer and their healthcare providers the precise information they need to determine which treatment approach is the most targeted and effective for their situation,” says William Audeh, MD, MS, Chief Medical Officer at Agendia. “Our continued efforts to identify and understand the biologic drivers of breast cancer in large patient populations have also enabled us to look within these to study unique subsets of people, and to offer additional important insights, as we continue to expand knowledge in breast cancer and build a library of data that will be of benefit to patients.”

About Agendia

Agendia is a precision oncology company headquartered in Irvine, California, committed to bringing early stage breast cancer patients and their physicians the information they need to make the best decisions for the full treatment journey. The company currently offers two commercially-available genomic profiling tests, supported by the highest levels of clinical and real world evidence, that provide comprehensive genomic information that can be used to identify the most effective breast cancer treatment possible for each patient.

MammaPrint®, the 70-gene breast cancer recurrence assay, is the only FDA-cleared risk of recurrence test backed by peer-reviewed, prospective outcome data and inclusion in both national and international treatment guidelines. BluePrint®, the 80-gene molecular subtyping assay, is the only commercially-available test that evaluates the underlying biology of a tumor to determine what is driving its growth. Together, MammaPrint® and BluePrint® provide a comprehensive genomic profile to help physicians make more informed decisions in the pre- and post-operative treatment settings.

By developing evidence-based novel genomic tests and conducting groundbreaking research while building an arsenal of data that will help treat breast cancer, Agendia aims to improve patient outcomes and support the evolving clinical needs of breast cancer patients and their physicians every step of the way, from initial diagnosis to cancer-free.

Agendia’s assays can be ordered on core biopsies or surgical specimens with results in as little as 5-7 days to inform pre- and post-operative treatment decisions. For more information on our assays and our ongoing trials, please visit www.agendia.com.

Wyss Center Partners With Artiria Medical to Accelerate a Novel Therapy for Cerebral Vasospasm23.7.2021 11:59:00 CEST | Press release

The Wyss Center and Artiria Medical today announced a new partnership to accelerate the translation of a novel technology that has the potential to reduce deaths and improve quality of life for stroke patients. Artiria Medical, an early-stage medical device company focused on disruptive neurovascular products, has been developing the technology and is now joining forces with the Wyss Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing state-of-the-art therapies to the patient. The team has received support from the Swiss Innovation Agency, Innosuisse, to test and validate the efficacy of the therapy preclinically, in preparation for human clinical studies. Stroke is the third leading cause of disability worldwide with more than 80 million people living with long-term impairments as a result. Some strokes result in bleeding in the brain. Such hemorrhagic strokes can lead to severe cerebral vasospasm - an uncontrolled contraction of brain arteries - in the days that follow, depriving
