17:02 EDTSQNMSequenom CMM's announces results of RetnaGene AMD
Sequenom announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine, presented results from a study of its RetnaGene AMD laboratory-developed test to predict risk of disease progression during the 2012 Joint Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology in Chicago. This Sequenom CMM laboratory-developed genetic test combines patient disease stage with patient genetic variation to evaluate the risk of a patient with early or intermediate AMD to progress to advanced choroidal neovascularization, or CNV, disease within 2, 5, and 10 years. CNV is the most common form of 'wet' advanced age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, in which new blood vessels in the eye leak fluid, compromising central vision. Advanced disease impacts approximately 10% of AMD patients, but is associated with 90 percent of vision loss in AMD.

07:05 EDTSQNMSequenom presents new data supporting accuracy of MaterniT21 test
Sequenom announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Sequenom Laboratories, presented patient clinical data substantiating the performance of its MaterniT21 PLUS noninvasive prenatal test in the laboratory. An ad hoc analysis of 185,000 samples from patients at high-risk for fetal chromosome aneuploidy demonstrated stable positivity rates for trisomy 21, 18 and 13, which mirror the positivity rates found in large studies on high-risk populations utilizing invasive diagnostic procedures. Additionally, Sequenom Laboratories reported performance results from clinical testing with the MaterniT21 PLUS test with Enhanced Sequencing Series. In the ad hoc analysis based on voluntary outcomes provided by clinicians, the estimated sensitivity for trisomy 21, 18 and 13 were 99.3%, 98.3% and 97.4% respectively, and the estimated specificity was >99.9% for all three trisomies. These clinical laboratory performance data are equivalent to those published in the clinical validation studies of the MaterniT21 test. Based on these performance metrics, Sequenom Laboratories estimates that the MaterniT21 PLUS test positive predictive value for trisomy 21, 18 and 13 were 99.0%, 97.6% and 92.8% respectively, and the negative predictive value was >99.9% for all three trisomies.
