Presentation showcases ability of blood-based DNA methylation to diagnose disease with high specificity and sensitivity
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 20, 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 2018 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium taking place Dec. 4 – 8 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. This presentation will include new data supporting the ability of LAM’s IvyGene Platform to detect blood-based DNA methylation biomarkers for the non-invasive diagnosis of breast cancer with high specificity and sensitivity. The data will be presented in the Detection/Diagnosis: Circulating BioMarkers & ctDNA poster session on December 7 from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. CST.

Session Time: 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. CST
DNA methylation significantly contributes to all hallmarks of cancer. In particular, promoter hypermethylation has been identified as a potential marker for early detection of cancer, therapy monitoring, assessment of prognosis or prediction of therapy response. Here, we identified and validated breast cancer-specific methylation markers for diagnosis of the disease with high sensitivity and specificity.
