IRVINE, Calif., April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oncocyte Corporation (Nasdaq: OCX), a precision diagnostics company, today announced that five posters of original research are being presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Four abstracts explore the tumor microenvironment and its potential implications for therapeutic response, leveraging expertise and technology behind DetermaIO. A fifth poster highlights exciting study results applying DetermaCNI, Oncocyte’s proprietary therapeutic monitoring blood test, to metastatic pancreatic cancer.
- Cronister, et al. “Methylation as a surrogate for mutations to identify therapeutic targets”
- Seitz, et al. “Using tumor immune microenvironment physiologic profiling to tailor immune checkpoint inhibitor diagnostic classification”
- Cronister, et al. “The role of microRNAs in the tumor immune microenvironment”
- Ring, et al. “In Silico dissection of immune infiltrate signatures that are detected by DetermaIO, a predictor of response to immune therapy”
- Cannas, et al. “Liquid biopsy signature combining copy number instability and mutant KRAS detection is associated with survival for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer”
“DetermaIO continues to build its case as the best-in-class measure of the tumor microenvironment. We are making rapid progress on feasibility for a Research Use Only version of this test to support researchers who need a better tool to identify patients poised to respond to immunotherapies,” said Joshua Riggs, Oncocyte CEO. “And DetermaCNI is a blood-only solution for efficacy monitoring, which we believe will make it an attractive alternative for researchers that need to conserve precious tissue, since no upfront tumor typing is required.”

These statements include those pertaining to, among other things, the expectation that there will be a Research Use Only version of DetermaIO to support researchers who need a better tool to identify patients poised to respond to immunotherapies, the expectation that DetermaCNI will be an attractive alternative for researchers that need to conserve precious tissue, and other statements about the future expectations, beliefs, goals, plans, or prospects expressed by management. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, the potential impact of COVID-19 on Oncocyte or its subsidiaries’ financial and operational results, risks inherent in the development and/or commercialization of diagnostic tests or products, uncertainty in the results of clinical trials or regulatory approvals, the capacity of Oncocyte’s third-party supplied blood sample analytic system to provide consistent and precise analytic results on a commercial scale, potential interruptions to supply chains, the need and ability to obtain future capital, maintenance of intellectual property rights in all applicable jurisdictions, obligations to third parties with respect to licensed or acquired technology and products, the need to obtain third party reimbursement for patients’ use of any diagnostic tests Oncocyte or its subsidiaries commercialize in applicable jurisdictions, and risks inherent in strategic transactions such as the potential failure to realize anticipated benefits, legal, regulatory or political changes in the applicable jurisdictions, accounting and quality controls, potential greater than estimated allocations of resources to develop and commercialize technologies, or potential failure to maintain any laboratory accreditation or certification. Actual results may differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements and accordingly such statements should be evaluated together with the many uncertainties that affect the business of Oncocyte, particularly those mentioned in the “Risk Factors” and other cautionary statements found in Oncocyte’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, which are available from the SEC’s website.
