Independent Study Data Supporting Clinical Use of Biodesix® Blood-Based Tests To Be Presented At CHEST Conference
Learning Theater Presentation Focused On Multi-Disciplinary Approach
An independent study in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) investigating how blood-based genomic and proteomic testing can be used to facilitate faster treatment decisions will be presented at the CHEST Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, California by study author Dr. Jennifer Mattingley, a leading specialist in pulmonary disease and critical care.
Dr. Mattingley will also present “Blood-based Molecular Testing for NSCLC: A Multi-Disciplinary Clinical Experience” at the CHEST Learning Theatre.
The predictive and prognostic utility of blood-based diagnostic testing for patients with NSCLC continues to gain acceptance in clinical practice, and as a part of multi-disciplinary approach to cancer care. Biodesix’ blood tests are minimally invasive, highly sensitive and offer fast turnaround time to results, enabling clinicians to make treatment decisions sooner.

Description: Pulmonologists work closely with oncologists to support management of patients with non-small cell lung cancer throughout the continuum of care. An expert pulmonologist will discuss the advantages of integrating blood-based molecular testing into practice and the impact on time to treatment and patient outcomes. Early molecular testing for patients with NSCLC is associated with significantly shorter time to treatment initiation.
