IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 23, 2018 — Laboratory for Advanced Medicine (LAM), a commercial-stage medical technology company focused on developing innovative technologies for the early diagnosis of cancers, today announced the title of its abstract to be presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 33rd Annual Meeting taking place Nov. 7-11, 2018 in Washington, D.C. This presentation will include new data further validating and demonstrating the ability of LAM’s DNA methylation-based biomarkers to noninvasively diagnose hepatocellular carcinoma with high specificity and sensitivity. This data will be available from Nov. 9- 10.
Presentation showcases ability of biomarkers to detect presence of disease with high specificity
Title: “DNA methylation biomarkers for noninvasive detection of hepatocellular carcinoma”
Authors: David J. Taggart, PhD; Dhruvajyoti Roy, PhD; Gen Li; Dan Liu; Lianghong Zheng
The importance of methylation in circulating DNA has been recognized in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and the DNA methylation-based approach shows potential for noninvasive and early diagnosis of HCC. In this study, LAM identified and validated HCC-specific methylation markers for detection of the disease with high sensitivity and specificity.
