Changing Care Worldwide at ASCO 2020

June 1, 2020

Lucence was delighted to participate in the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program 2020 organized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology from May 29 – 31 2020.

We presented data demonstrating high sensitivity of our liquid biopsy technology, AmpliMARK™, at a limit of detection of 0.1% variant allele frequency in detecting clinically relevant biomarkers in lung cancer, alongside promising data in breast and blood cancers.

In lung cancer, AmpliMARK™ achieved 97.4% concordance for recommended biomarkers between two orthogonal liquid biopsy platforms. Our technology also demonstrated high sensitivity in detecting mutations in PIK3CA alongside other driver genes, supporting its clinical utility in breast tumors. AmpliMARK™ was further extended and validated for ultrasensitive multiplex detection of structural rearrangements in ALK, RET, ROS1 and PD-L1 in solid and blood cancers.
