Epigenomics Releases Performance Data on Next Generation Test
Berlin (Germany) and San Diego, CA (U.S.A.), December 14, 2022 – Epigenomics Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “Company”), an oncology focused molecular diagnostics company, today announced:
The new updated version of the “Next-Gen” assay, which incorporates in-licensed technology, achieved 84% sensitivity at 90% specificity and an advanced adenoma detection rate of 20% in pre-clinical testing. Results were based on a total of 241 subjects, ranging in age from 45-to-85, excluding advanced adenomas and including 70 CRC positive samples equally distributed between early (Stages 1&2) and late (Stages 3&4) stages of the disease. The Next-Gen test is a simple, easy to use, multiomics-solution that employs both DNA methylation markers with protein targets to assess an individual patient’s risk of having colorectal cancer.
“We are very pleased with the pre-clinical performance of our new multiomics-solution for CRC testing. An annual, blood-based test that outperforms FIT has the opportunity to be compelling solution for CRC screening that will drive higher screening rates and lower the mortality of this preventable disease”, said Greg Hamilton, CEO of Epigenomics. “With the increased sensitivity of the Next-Gen test we are confident that we will exceed the CMS threshold of 74% sensitivity at 90% specificity in our prospective clinical trial thus achieving Medicare reimbursement upon future FDA approval.”
Epigenomics AG is a molecular diagnostics company focused on blood testing for the early detection of cancer. Based on its proprietary biomarker technology for the detection of methylated DNA, Epigenomics develops and markets blood tests for various cancer indications with high unmet medical need.
