Personalis Announces Podium Presentations and Abstracts Accepted at ASCO 2024

Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced genomics for precision oncology, announced today that two podium presentations and multiple posters featuring data for the company’s NeXT Personal® whole genome-based, tumor-informed assay for ultra-sensitive ctDNA detection will be presented at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, which convenes from May 31-June 4, 2024, in Chicago, Illinois.

“As the body of studies continues to grow that demonstrates the role our ultra-sensitive MRD test, NeXT Personal, can play in identifying recurrent cancer early, we were honored to learn that two Personalis studies were selected as podium presentations at ASCO 2024’s Clinical Science Symposium”, said Dr. Richard Chen, Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, R&D at Personalis.

The two studies that were selected to appear as podium presentations are:

  • Clinical Science Symposium: Emerging Role of ctDNA in Breast Cancer
    • Presenter: Isaac Garcia-Murillas, PhD
    • Overview: Ultra-sensitive ctDNA mutation tracking to identify molecular residual disease and predict relapse in patients with early breast cancer.
    • Abstract Number: 1010
  • Clinical Science Symposium: Hitting the Mark - The Ongoing Search for Immunotherapy Biomarkers
    • Presenter: Rodrigo A Toledo, PhD, MBA
    • Overview: Prognostic and predictive value of ultrasensitive ctDNA monitoring in a metastatic pan-cancer cohort treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors in the context of phase 1 clinical trials.
    • Abstract Number: 2510
