Neo Comprehensive™ - Heme Cancers is a large and comprehensive next-generation sequencing panel with broad coverage of genes associated with blood cancers
Early-stage NSCLC Panel - a therapy selection panel providing a comprehensive overview of biomarkers for detecting early-stage lung cancer
FT. MYERS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 24, 2023 / NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEO), a leading oncology testing services company, announced today the commercial availability of two new tests, expanding its cancer portfolio of innovative products. These include Neo Comprehensive™ - Heme Cancers, a next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel with a comprehensive genomic profile of hematologic malignancies, and Early-stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Panel, a therapy selection panel designed specifically for early-stage NSCLC patients.
"With our newest panels, we can provide oncologists with the vital information they need to personalize cancer care, putting their patients on a path towards better outcomes right from the start of their cancer journey," said Warren Stone, President of Clinical Services at NeoGenomics. "Research shows that the selection of therapy informed by biomarker testing can be critical to improving patient outcomes. The commercial availability of these new panels highlights our mission to save lives by improving patient care, using biomarker testing paired with our uncompromising quality and exceptional service," Stone continued.
Neo Comprehensive - Heme Cancers is NeoGenomics' largest, most comprehensive heme NGS panel with broad coverage of genes associated with hematologic cancers. It further enhances NeoGenomics' extensive test menu for heme testing, especially the NGS portfolio, strengthening the company's position as a leading laboratory in heme oncology services.
The Early-stage NSCLC Panel is NeoGenomics' most focused early-stage lung cancer panel to date, detecting genomic alterations and gene expression in key biomarkers that are relevant in diagnosis, therapy selection, prognosis, and clinical trials. The Panel provides new, easy-to-interpret reports and a 7 day turn-around time, offering clinicians the ability to easily order the evidence-based set of concise, targeted, and actionable markers in a specific panel to support the management of their patients with lung cancer, at earlier stages of diagnosis.
About Neo Comprehensive™ - Heme Cancers
Neo Comprehensive - Heme Cancers is a comprehensive genomic profile (CGP) analyzing 433 genes relevant to most forms of hematologic malignancies from myeloid and lymphoid lineages, detecting SNVs (single nucleotide variants), InDels (insertions and deletions), CNVs (copy number variants), and fusions utilizing DNA and RNA NGS methods. This panel is aligned with the latest guidelines and the WHO 5th Edition Classification of Haematolymphoid Tumours. It can provide key diagnostic information, including critical molecular determinations affecting therapeutic approaches, aid in risk stratification, predicting prognosis, and can be used in clinical research.
About Early-stage NSCLC Panel
The Early-stage NSCLC Panel is NeoGenomics' most focused early-stage lung cancer panel that detects genomic alterations and gene expression in key biomarkers that we believe are most relevant in diagnosis, therapy selection, prognosis, and clinical trials. The panel includes EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor), ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase), ROS (reactive oxygen species) and PD-L1 (programmed death-ligand 1) reported in a streamlined test report format.
The Early-stage NSCLC Panel is available as an enhancement of existing single-gene tests by simplifying ordering and increasing standardization of evidence-based multi-biomarker testing. Combining information about genetic alterations and PD-L1 expression provides the complete picture for targeted therapy decisions that provide the best outcomes for patients.
