New Study: Videssa® Breast Blood Test Can Effectively Rule Out Breast Cancer, Regardless of Breast Density
With over a 99 percent negative predictive value, a liquid biopsy test can help clinicians manage difficult-to-diagnose dense breast patients
NEW YORK, October 25, 2017 – A new study published in PLOS ONE demonstrates that Videssa® Breast, a multi-protein biomarker blood test for breast cancer, is unaffected by breast density and can reliably rule out breast cancer in women with both dense and non-dense breast tissue. Nearly half of all women in the U.S. have dense breast tissue.
“Women who have dense breasts are at a double disadvantage. Not only are they at higher risk of developing breast cancer, but dense breast tissue can decrease the reliability of imaging and increase the chances of a false finding.” said Judith K. Wolf, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Provista Diagnostics, Inc. “This study shows that, with an over 99 percent negative predictive value (NPV), clinicians can confidently use Videssa Breast to detect cancer in women with dense breasts and better determine when biopsy is truly warranted to assess suspicious findings.”Read More
New Study: Blood Test Offers Improved Breast Cancer Detection, New Tool to Reduce Use of Breast Biopsy
Study of Videssa® Breast shows "liquid biopsy" after abnormal mammogram and other imaging can help rule out breast cancer, reduce breast biopsy by up to 67 percent in women under the age of 50
NEW YORK, May 23, 2017 – A new study published in Clinical Breast Cancer demonstrates that Videssa® Breast, a multi-protein biomarker blood test to detect breast cancer, can help inform better decision-making after abnormal mammogram or other breast imaging results and potentially reduce use of biopsy by up to 67 percent. The study evaluated the performance of Videssa Breast among women under age 50.
With about 1.6 million breast biopsies performed each year,1 the implications of a blood test that can help clinicians confidently rule out breast cancer and avoid a potentially unnecessary biopsy are tremendous,” said Judith K. Wolf, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Provista Diagnostics, Inc.Read More
