Since its launch in 2016, the DermTech PLA, DermTech’s non-invasive adhesive patch test for melanoma detection, has been used to assess more than 50,000 lesions and remains the first and only non-invasive gene expression test in dermatology, providing objective genomic data to help guide clinical decisions.
5/7/18: Pediatric Spitz nevi pose significant diagnostic challenges to physicians and dermatopathologists with the current image-recognition based standard. In this clinical study, gene expression patterns of pigmented lesions from FFPE tissue block samples were investigated. PRAME gene expression was shown to be a valuable molecular aid to differentiate melanomas from Spitz nevi, a group of pigmented lesions that can be particularly difficult to assess in children and young adults.
