08:10 EDTTROVTrovagene presents urine-based HPV assay clinical results
Trovagene announced that results from two independent clinical studies were presented at the 29th International Papillomavirus Conference. Results from both pilot studies consistently demonstrated that the company's urine-based assay for the detection of high-risk HPV had high sensitivity for identifying women with high grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. Assay performance was comparable to traditional HPV testing with commercially available tests in patient-matched cervical samples. In one of these studies, urine collection has been examined to establish standardization of urine as a clinical specimen for high-risk HPV testing. In an oral presentation entitled "Evaluation of Two Urine-Based HPV Assays In Comparison to Cervical HPV Detection and High-Grade CIN Among Women Attending a Colposcopy Clinic," results from a population-based National Cancer Institute study, conducted at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, were released. A second presentation entitled "A Comparison of Urine Collection Times for the Detection of High-Risk HPV Infection in Women" included results from a study conducted at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The company said, "The positive study results presented at the IPV Conference are very encouraging as we continue to conduct clinical studies to evaluate the performance of our urine-based high-risk HPV assay as a viable alternative to conventional HPV testing from a cervical specimen. A significantly larger, blinded study which compares sensitivity of detecting high-risk HPV in patients with CIN2/3 in urine versus cervical samples is ongoing and results will be reported by 1Q15."

16:09 EDTTROVTrovagene reports presentation of field experience analysis results with PCM
Trovagene announced the presentation of results from a field experience analysis featuring the use of its Precision Cancer Monitoring, or PCM, platform to accurately identify mutational status, which can be critical for physicians to determine appropriate therapy for patients. Mark Erlander, Ph.D. chief scientific officer of Trovagene is delivering the results today in an oral presentation titled CLIA Laboratory Testing of Urinary BRAF V600E DNA mutations: Application in the Management of Patients with Histiocytic Diseases at the 3rd Annual Erdheim-Chester International Medical Symposium, MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The ability to quickly and accurately determine BRAF mutational status is very important to our patients with histiocytic disease when assessing therapeutic options," stated Filip Janku, M.D. Ph.D., of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. "In patients that test positive for the mutation, the use of a BRAF inhibitor can offer a prolonged benefit that significantly improves their quality of life. We are encouraged by the recent advances in molecular diagnostic testing that can enable fast, accurate and non-invasive testing for our patients." Antonius Schuh, Ph.D., CEO of Trovagene, stated, "These data again demonstrate the ability of our urinary liquid biopsy platform to determine and monitor mutational status in patients when tissue biopsy is either inconclusive or unavailable. We are pleased to support the underserved histiocytic patient population for whom determining BRAF mutational status can be critical for therapeutic selection and improving treatment outcomes."
