Veracyte Announces New Afirma Xpression Atlas Data on Medullary Thyroid Cancer

Data to be Presented at ENDO 2019

Veracyte, Inc. announced today that new data derived from the Afirma® Xpression Atlas, which help characterize the genomic underpinning of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), will be presented at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting.

The findings on this rare–but aggressive–form of thyroid cancer will be presented in a guided poster presentation during the conference, which is taking place March 23-26 in New Orleans, La.

“The Afirma Xpression Atlas is enabling us to shed new light on the scope and scale of gene alterations found in medullary thyroid cancer,” said Giulia C. Kennedy, Ph.D., chief medical and scientific officer of Veracyte. “We believe that, in the emerging era of precision medicine, such information will be vital to advancing the diagnosis and treatment of this aggressive cancer and we look forward to sharing our findings at ENDO 2019.”
