Cancer Genetics to Attend ASCO Annual Meeting
RUTHERFORD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (OTCQB: CGIX) ("CGI" or the "Company"), a leader in oncology-focused personalized medicine, will attend for the first time the 2013 American Society of Clinical Oncology ("ASCO") Annual Meeting on May 31-June 4, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago. CGI will be at stand number 19120 during the event.
The ASCO Annual Meeting brings together more than 25,000 oncology professionals from a broad range of specialties to discuss challenges and developments in cancer care and research.
Fitting with the theme of this year's meeting, "Building Bridges to Conquer Cancer," CGI has established research collaborations with premier institutions including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, National Cancer Institute, Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic. These and other efforts have resulted in the Company's commercial launch of multiple proprietary tests for the diagnosis and treatment management of hematological and urogenital cancers.
CGI diagnostic tests include MatBA®, based on proven genomic data for the clinical management of hematological cancers, and UroGenRA™, designed for kidney cancer diagnosis and subtyping.
In addition to presenting these proprietary tests to healthcare professionals, CGI plans to meet with biopharmas as well. CGI's Select One™ program, launched in early 2012 to serve the clinical trial needs of biopharmas, has shown constant growth since its inception. The Company looks forward to creating new opportunities at the ASCO meeting.
