NanoString to Present Posters at San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

NanoStringAt the upcoming, annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, NanoString Technologies, Seattle, Wash, will present three posters on its in vitro diagnostic breast cancer assay (based on the PAM50 gene expression signature).

The PAM50-based breast cancer assay provides a subtype classification based on the fundamental biology of an individual’s breast tumor. Of these posters, one will reveal results from NanoString’s second clinical validation study for prognosis in postmenopausal women with hormone-receptor positive, early-stage breast cancer treated with endocrine therapy alone.

Information about the posters is shown below:

Clinical validation of the PAM50 risk of recurrence (ROR) score for predicting residual risk of distant-recurrence (DR) after endocrine therapy in postmenopausal women with ER+ early breast cancer
