NEW DATA PUBLISHED IN PLOS ONE VALIDATE THE CLINICAL PERFORMANCE OF VERACYTE’S PERCEPTA GENOMIC SEQUENCING CLASSIFIER IN LUNG CANCER DIAGNOSIS
Findings from a large, multi-cohort study suggest the genomic test can improve care for lung nodule patients with inconclusive bronchoscopy results
Excerpt from the Press Release:
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jul. 13, 2022– Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT) announced that new data published today in PLOS ONE show that the company’s Percepta Genomic Sequencing Classifier (GSC) is highly accurate in re-classifying lung cancer risk among patients with lung nodules whose bronchoscopy results are inconclusive. The authors also conclude that, based on findings from the large, multi-cohort study, use of the genomic test could enable a significant portion of patients to avoid unnecessary and invasive diagnostic procedures and offer the potential for earlier diagnosis.
“Quickly and accurately determining whether lung nodules identified through screening or incidentally are benign or malignant is critical to improve patient outcomes, but is often challenging. Physicians frequently use bronchoscopy to evaluate potentially cancerous lung nodules because it is less invasive than surgery, however, many times this procedure produces inconclusive results, leaving physicians and patients without clear guidance about what to do next,” said Bill Bulman, M.D., Veracyte’s medical director for lung cancer. “The findings from this study suggest that the Percepta GSC provides accurate, objective information that can help resolve this challenge.”
Researchers evaluated the ability of the Percepta GSC to accurately classify risk of malignancy (ROM) in a blinded, independent set of 412 samples from lung nodule patients who were included in one of three, large study cohorts (AEGIS I/II and the Percepta Registry study). Each sample was classified pre-bronchoscopy as low, intermediate or high ROM and subsequently had a bronchoscopy result that was inconclusive.
