RedPath Announces Presentations at 2014 Digestive Disease Week Meeting
PITTSBURGH --(Business Wire)--
RedPath Integrated Pathology, Inc., a leader in molecular diagnostics,
announced today that data from The National Pancreatic Cyst Registry, a
multi-institutional prospective study of 492 patients with pancreatic
cysts, has been accepted for oral presentation at the Digestive Disease
Week (DDW) Annual Meeting taking place May 3-6, 2014, at McCormick Place
Results from the study show that, when cytology results are
non-malignant, integrated molecular pathology (IMP) can accurately
differentiate cysts with low versus high malignant potential by
incorporating DNA molecular analyses with first-line tests (cytologic
atypia, CEA, imaging).
Dr. Thomas Kowalski, Director of Gastroenterology and Associate
Professor of Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University will present the
data on Tuesday, May 6 at 2:20pm (CT).
In addition, research data on the use of IMP in patient management of
pancreatic cysts will be presented in a poster on Monday, May 5, 2014,
and data on the use of IMP in Barrett's Esophagus will be presented in a
poster on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
Details of the presentations are as follows:
