Biodesix Announces Data To Be Presented at AACR Annual Meeting 2017

New data on genomic tests and single-reaction, multiplexed genomic assays; evaluation of biological processes via mass spectrometry of human serum

March 28, 2017, Boulder, Colorado…Biodesix, Inc. will present three posters summarizing new data from research evaluating the company’s genomic tests and its PSEA (protein set enrichment analysis) platform at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2017. The AACR meeting will take place April 1-5, 2017 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

“These findings reinforce the potential of our blood-based, multi-omic testing to improve lung-cancer diagnosis and treatment,” said David Brunel, Biodesix CEO. “We are actively designing and developing tests that both measure actionable mutations in the tumor but also other biological and immunological processes which impact individual patients’ treatment responses, and provide utility in real-world clinical practice.”
