10:18 EDTVCYTVeracyte has Percepta market opportunity above $175M, says Piper Jaffray
Following the publication of results from studies that assessed the performance of Veracyte's Percepta test in lung cancer diagnosis, Piper Jaffray said the data was in line with previous diligence and that it expects the NEJM publication to help drive adoption. The firm, which estimates the initial domestic market opportunity for the test at $177M-$236M, kept its Overweight rating and $13 price target on Veracyte shares.
07:10 EDTVCYTVeracyte announces publication of results from two Percepta trials
Veracyte announced online publication in the New England Journal of Medicine of results from two large, prospective, multicenter studies that assessed the clinical performance of the company's Percepta Bronchial Genomic Classifier in lung cancer diagnosis. Findings from the AEGIS I and AEGIS II trials demonstrate the ability of the genomic test to help patients safely avoid unnecessary invasive, risky procedures on suspicious lung nodules or lesions that were initially found on computed tomography, or CT, scans. The AEGIS trials involved 639 patients at 28 sites in the United States, Canada and Ireland who were undergoing bronchoscopy, a common nonsurgical procedure, to assess lung nodules for cancer. Specifically, among patients assessed clinically as having "intermediate" risk of malignancy who then had a non-diagnostic bronchoscopy, the Percepta test had a negative predictive value, or NPV, of 91%, demonstrating the test's ability to reclassify these patients as "low risk" with a high degree of accuracy. The genomic test and the bronchoscopy had a combined sensitivity of 97%, compared to 75% for bronchoscopy alone. The genomic test's specificity was 47% in both studies. The sensitivity of the Percepta classifier alone and in combination with bronchoscopy was consistently high, regardless of nodule size and location, and cancer stage and type.

17:31 EDTVCYTVeracyte reports publication of Percepta Bronchial Genomic Classifier study
Veracyte announced the online publication of a study on the derivation of the company's Percepta Bronchial Genomic Classifier, which is used to help patients avoid unnecessary invasive procedures as part of lung cancer diagnosis. The article, published in BMC Medical Genomics, details the rigorous scientific and clinical approach used to develop the genomic test. The 23-gene classifier was developed in a dedicated training set of 299 patients enrolled in a large, prospective, multicenter study of current and former cigarette smokers who were undergoing bronchoscopy for lung nodules and lesions that were suspicious for cancer. Subjects were enrolled at 25 medical centers around the country. The classifier's performance in identifying and ruling out cancer was found to be consistent with data from a previously published study. Data from two large prospective, multicenter trials AEGIS I and AEGIS II have not yet been published.
