Cancer Genetics, Inc. to Report Results From Two Independent Studies at the 30th International Papillomavirus Conference & Clinical and Public Health Workshops (HPV 2015)

RUTHERFORD, N.J., Sept. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CGIX) ("CGI" or "The Company"), an emerging leader in DNA-based cancer diagnostics, announced today the presentation of results from two independent cervical cancer-related studies during the 30th International Papillomavirus Conference & Clinical and Public Health Workshops (HPV 2015) scheduled to take place on September 17-21, 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The first study entitled "Chromosomal Gains Measured by Fluorescence in situ Hybridization in Cytology Samples" was conducted in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The study evaluated the gain of three individual genomic loci by Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) as a biomarker-guided tool for detecting cancerous and precancerous cells in 294 liquid-based cervical cytology samples from women undergoing routine cervical cancer screenings in the United States. This is the second study done in collaboration with the NCI that assesses the use of biomarkers included in CGI's FHACT® test.

The second study was conducted in collaboration with Kamineni Hospital, Hyderabad (India). The poster titled "Evaluation of Gain of Four Chromosomal Loci by Fluorescence in-situ Hybridization on Pap Smears of Women in India" provides insights about the correlation of CGI's FHACT® results and cervical cytology. The goal of the study was to evaluate the potential for detection using visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), HR-HPV subtyping, and fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) at the time of cytologic assessment for women with underlying high grade cervical disease.

The poster abstracts can be viewed online through the HPV 2015 website at:
