Veracyte Announces New Data Relating to Prosigna Breast Cancer Test to Be Presented at ESMO Breast Cancer Virtual Congress - Seite 2
The second poster will feature initial findings and consensus from the first wave of the PROCURE (Prosigna Clinical Utility Review) project, a European study utilizing the Delphi methodology to generate consensus regarding the clinical utility of genomic tests, including the Prosigna Breast Cancer Gene Signature Assay, in breast cancer treatment. The study is led by an independent scientific committee of eight breast cancer experts with input from 141 breast cancer clinicians practicing in nearly a dozen European countries.
The Prosigna Breast Cancer Gene Signature Assay is a prognostic genomic test, built from PAM50 molecular subtypes, which combines tumor gene expression with clinicopathologic factors to better inform treatment decisions. The assay is indicated in female breast cancer patients who have undergone either mastectomy or breast-conserving therapy in conjunction with locoregional treatment consistent with standard of care, either as a prognostic indicator for distant recurrence-free survival at 10 years in post-menopausal women with Hormone Receptor-Positive (HR+), lymph node-negative, Stage I or II breast cancer, or lymph node-positive (1–3 positive nodes, or 4 or more positive nodes), Stage II or IIIA breast cancer to be treated with adjuvant endocrine therapy alone, when used in conjunction with other clinicopathological factors. Outside of the United States, the Prosigna Breast Cancer Gene Signature Assay also provides the intrinsic subtypes of the tumor tissue within three groups, low, intermediate and high, by the nCounter Analysis System through decentralized performance.
The Prosigna test is FDA 510(k) cleared in the United States for use on the nCounter Analysis System and is available for use when ordered by a physician. The Prosigna test has received CE Mark and is available for use by healthcare professionals in the European Union and other countries that recognize the CE Mark, as well as in Canada, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. The assay is covered by Medicare and leading private payers in the United States, and is widely covered by government and private payers in the countries where it is available.
