Presentations to highlight role of liquid biopsy tests and real-world data in identifying resistance mechanisms to therapy, demonstrating impact of specific mutations on treatment efficacy, and informing therapeutic strategies in lung cancer
Guardant Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GH), a leading precision oncology company, announced today that studies utilizing its portfolio of blood tests and real-world data will be presented at the IASLC 2022 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC 2022), hosted by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, August 6-9 in Vienna, Austria. Among the 10 abstracts are oral presentations and posters highlighting the use of Guardant360™ to help physicians inform treatment decisions, GuardantOMNI™ to advance cancer therapy trials, and GuardantINFORM™ for targeted drug development to improve outcomes for patients with lung cancer.
“We look forward to sharing new data at WCLC that demonstrate the utility of our liquid biopsy tests and datasets to create more accurate tumor profiles and impact outcomes for lung cancer patients around the world,” said Helmy Eltoukhy, Guardant Health co-CEO. “The data from retrospective and real-world analyses will show how blood-based tests provide critical insights into tumor evolution and treatment resistance throughout each lung cancer patient’s treatment journey and contribute more broadly to further developing the field of thoracic oncology.”
