Genomic Testing Cooperative to Present Data on its Proprietary RNA Profiling and Artificial Intelligence Algorithms at American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting

Irvine, California– December 3, 2019 – Genomic Testing Cooperative, LCA (GTC) announced that they will be presenting data on their proprietary AI-based algorithms and RNA and DNA testing at the American Association of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting. In collaboration with multiple academic centers, GTC developed new approaches for the classification of diseases and prediction of response to combination therapy.

Dr. Maher Albitar, GTC Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer, stated “Cancer is complex disease and requires complex biomarkers for predicting its behavior. RNA Sequencing provides a wealth of information that can be used for predicting clinical course and response to combination therapy. RNA sequencing data, when combined with mathematical algorithms, can provide reliable means to manage and treat cancer. GTC is committed to be the leader in innovation in developing molecular biomarkers to help physicians select the proper combination therapy for their patients.”

Highlights of GTC presentations include:

-Targeted next generation sequencing (NGS) of RNA is reliable and practical for routine clinical testing.

-RNA sequencing data when used with AI or Bayesian statistics can provide powerful means for predicting clinical behavior and response to combination therapy

-Testing for mutations using RNA may provide a new paradigm for better characterizing and monitoring of cancers

-Liquid biopsy provides important clinical information in patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

The following is a list of studies that will be presented by GTC and its collaborators at ASH:
