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

    Session: Spotlight Poster Discussion 9 | Thursday, December 10, 2020 | 3:30pm – 4:45pm CST

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.

Disruptive Tech Asean Comments That Semiconductor Industry in China Eyes on a New Beyond the Manufacturing Of 7nm Chips3.12.2020 11:00:00 CETPress release

Disruptive Tech Asean learnt from Li Ke from China Semiconductor Industry Association (CSIA) that an integrated circuit industry is vital for developing modern industries, and China is therefore imperative to localize chip industry supply chain and develop homegrown-core chips. Li Ke believes that China will have the ability to fully mass-produce its own 28nm chips in one or two years, as well as having a completely domestic industry chain and independent chip manufacturing capabilities. According to Gartner’s forecast at the end of 2019, the global semiconductor market would grow by 12.5% in 2020. Yet, with devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the forecast was revised to a decline of 0.9%. According to Andrew Norwood, Research Vice President at Gartner, “COVID-19 has distorted supply chain and manufacturing operations across the world and will lead to a drastic drop in consumer and enterprise spending across most areas with a few exceptions.” The US-China trade war has also c

Smart meters come with in-home displays to enable consumers to have a better understanding of their energy usage. Against that backdrop, customers using the latest generation of smart meters are reporting an average saving of around 10% per month.

Measuring What Matters: A New Approach to Assessing Sovereign Climate Risk3.12.2020 09:23:00 CETPress release

Moody’s affiliate Four Twenty Seven today released a report analyzing the future exposure of the global population, the economy, and agriculture to a range of climate hazards, exploring both global trends and findings by country. Leveraging new analytics developed by Four Twenty Seven, the report assesses exposure to floods, heat stress, hurricanes and typhoons, rising sea levels, wildfires, and water stress and is based on the only known global dataset matching physical climate risk exposure to population location, GDP Purchasing Power Parity (PPP), and agricultural areas within countries. “This novel dataset provides a detailed view of the exposure of key human and economic assets around the world. Understanding exposure is critical for investors and credit institutions to price climate risk, but also to help direct finance flows towards adaptation and resilience where they’re most needed,” says Emilie Mazzacurati, Global Head of Moody’s Climate Solutions in Moody’s ESG Solutions Gro
