Veracyte Announces Five Abstracts Providing Molecular Insights Into Prostate and Other Cancers To Be Presented at the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 27, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT) today announced that five abstracts providing new molecular insights into prostate and other cancers will be presented at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, taking place in Chicago and online June 2-6. Three of the accepted abstracts leverage Veracyte’s Decipher GRID (Genomic Resource for Intelligent Discovery) database to explore potential opportunities for further personalizing treatment for patients with prostate cancer.

"At Veracyte, we are committed to partnering with the scientific community to uncover new insights that may ultimately help further transform cancer care for patients," said Marc Stapley, Veracyte’s chief executive officer. "We particularly look forward to study findings being presented at ASCO that leverage our Decipher GRID database to explore differences in how patients with prostate cancer might respond to particular treatments based on their genomic profiles, and that demonstrate our deep scientific capabilities in immuno-oncology."
