Fundación Instituto Valenciano de Oncología Uses HTG Technology for Laboratory-Developed Breast Cancer Screening


HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc.

TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTGM) (HTG) is a life sciences company advancing precision medicine through innovative whole-transcriptome profiling technology The company, Fundación Instituto Valenciano de Oncología (IVO) in Valencia, Spain, together with its partners Fundación Pública Andaluza Progreso y Salud (FPS) and Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red (CIBER), has developed a laboratory The test (LDT) (MPD test) is used to assess breast cancer recurrence based on the use of HTG EdgeSeq™ technology.

This innovative test for HR+/HER2- early breast cancer patients was developed by IVO and its partners to identify patients at high risk of distant metastasis or recurrence who may benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy. rice field. IVO is one of the top 50 cancer hospitals in the world. FPS is a public institution primarily dedicated to research and information technology. CIBER is a public research consortium aimed at advancing research in biomedical and health sciences.

This highly talented and experienced team of researchers has partnered to develop and validate MPD tests using HTG EdgeSeq technology. This, coupled with the sensitivity and dynamic range of next-generation sequencing, typically requires only one 5-μm-thin His FFPE tissue biopsy section. (NGS)-based detection that produces results in as little as 3 days.

HTG Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Byron Lawson said: “The MPD test is a great example of how HTG EdgeSeq technology can be used not only for molecular profiling and analysis, but also as a predictive tool to advance precision medicine.”

Dr. José Antonio López-Guerrero, Director of IVO’s Molecular Biology Laboratory, said: “When the results of two different genomic assays are inconsistent, it can have significant clinical implications for patients, for example in determining whether a patient chooses to undergo chemotherapy. Leveraged, the MPD test reduces time to results, reduces potential risk of bias, and improves overall risk profile using only small samples from tissue biopsies We see it as a cost-effective option for

The MPD test is available as an LDT offered by IVO and its partners.
