Guardant Health to Present Precision Oncology Data Across the Continuum of Care at the ASCO Annual Meeting

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardant Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GH), along with researchers from leading academic institutions and pharmaceutical companies, will present 27 abstracts at the ASCO Annual Meeting detailing new insights into precision oncology generated from its commercially available Guardant360 and GuardantOMNI assays, as well as its research-use-only (RUO) LUNAR liquid biopsy.

For patients with advanced cancer, these include multiple investigations of the GuardantOMNI assay’s ability to identify patients who may benefit from treatment with immunotherapy. Additionally, researchers will present Guardant360 data to demonstrate the effectiveness of new targeted drugs, as well as the feasibility of serial ctDNA analysis to rapidly predict treatment response and long-term clinical benefit.

For patients with early stage disease, the presentations include an analytical validation of Guardant’s LUNAR assay (Abstract 3057), as well as a pilot study exploring the LUNAR assay’s ability to identify early-stage colorectal cancer patients who may benefit from adjuvant therapy after undergoing an intervention with curative intent (Abstract 3602). This is a particularly challenging clinical setting for the detection of circulating tumor DNA in blood because patients who have undergone curative-intent interventions typically have little-to-no evidence of disease, and very low residual tumor DNA shedding in circulation.

“Guardant is committed to expanding the benefits of precision oncology across the continuum of care,” said Guardant Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Richard Lanman. “The new insights we and our research partners will bring to ASCO this year continue to demonstrate the many advantages of blood-based genomic testing over tissue-based genomic testing in support of a blood-first paradigm in early stage and late stage cancer.”

Guardant’s data will be featured in the following presentations at ASCO this year:
