Irvine, CA, USA and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, November 30, 2017 / B3C newswire / -- Agendia, Inc., a world leader in personalized medicine and molecular cancer diagnostics, announces the presentation of extensive new data at the upcoming 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), highlighting the value of its MammaPrint® 70-Gene Breast Cancer Risk-of-Recurrence Test and BluePrint® Breast Cancer Molecular Subtyping Test. A total of eleven posters and discussions are being presented at SABCS, which will take place at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas from December 5-9, 2017.
The posters and presentations feature important new data from the I-SPY 2 trial (Neoadjuvant and Personalized Adaptive Novel Agents to Treat Breast Cancer) and the IMPACt trial (Measuring the Impact of MammaPrint on Adjuvant and Neoadjuvant Treatment in Breast Cancer Patients: A Prospective Registry) as well as cost-effectiveness data and performance data across patient populations of different ages, and those affected by obesity and other metabolic factors.
A highlight will be the oral presentation on Thursday, December 7 which will show the first long-term survival results from the I-SPY 2 trial for patients pre-selected by MammaPrint.
Dr. William Audeh, Chief Medical Officer at Agendia, said: “The breadth and depth of the new data being presented at SABCS clearly demonstrates the broad application of MammaPrint and BluePrint in helping to guide breast cancer treatment decisions in a wide range of patient populations. In addition, it underscores the important role that MammaPrint can take in clinical trials like I-SPY 2. Physicians and their patients want to feel confident that they are using the test that is backed with the highest level of clinical evidence and the most comprehensive data, and MammaPrint can provide this reassurance.”
Abstracts are available to view on the SABCS website. For more information please visit the Agendia team at booth 601.

MammaPrint is an in vitro diagnostic test, performed in a central laboratory, using the gene expression profile of breast cancer tissue samples to assess a patients’ risk for distant metastasis. MammaPrint is cleared by the US FDA and carries the CE Mark, enabling the use of the test in the European Union. MammaPrint is indicated for use by physicians as a prognostic marker only, along with other clinical-pathological factors. The test is not intended to determine the outcome of disease, nor to suggest or infer an individual patient’s response to therapy.
Agendia is a privately held, leading molecular diagnostics company that develops and markets genomic diagnostic products, which help support physicians with their complex treatment decisions. Agendia’s breast cancer tests were developed using an unbiased gene selection by analyzing the complete human genome. Our offerings include the MammaPrint® 70-Gene Breast Cancer Risk-of-Recurrence Test, and the BluePrint® Molecular Subtyping Test that provide deeper insight leading to more clinically actionable breast cancer biology.
In addition, Agendia has a pipeline of other genomic products in development. The company collaborates with pharmaceutical companies, leading cancer centers and academic groups to develop companion diagnostic tests in the area of oncology.
