Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT), a global genomic diagnostics company with a presence in seven of the top ten cancers in the United States, announced today that six abstracts for its genomic tests in lung, prostate and thyroid cancers will be presented at the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, which will be held virtually June 4-8, 2021.

The accepted abstracts include pivotal clinical validation data for Veracyte’s Percepta Nasal Swab. This first-of-its-kind, non-invasive test will help physicians determine which patients with lung nodules found on CT scans are at low risk for cancer and can be safely directed to routine monitoring without fear of missing a cancer and which patients should undergo further, including potentially more-aggressive, clinical work-up. Veracyte plans to introduce the nasal swab-based genomic test in the second half of 2021, as part of the company’s comprehensive lung cancer portfolio.

“We are thrilled with the compelling data that will be presented at ASCO, which reflect our tests’ ability to positively impact patient care in a range of major cancers,” said Bonnie Anderson, Veracyte’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are particularly excited about the opportunity in lung cancer, where early detection can save lives, but where distinguishing between cancerous and benign lung nodules is often challenging and can lead to missed cancers or unnecessary procedures. We believe our Percepta Nasal Swab test is going to be a game-changer for patients being evaluated for lung cancer.”

Among other Veracyte highlights, researchers will share prospective validation data for the Decipher Prostate test, demonstrating the genomic test’s ability to predict aggressive prostate cancers among African American men as compared to the use of clinical factors alone.

Below are details of the Veracyte abstracts accepted for presentation at ASCO. All posters will be available to meeting registrants on demand beginning June 4, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

Title:

Early candidate nasal swab classifiers developed using machine learning and whole transcriptome sequencing may improve early lung cancer detection.
