Diaceutics PLC (AIM: DXRX), the data analytics and implementation services company which services the global pharmaceutical industry, announces it will present a poster at the 2019 European Society of Medical Oncology Congress (“ESMO”) in Barcelona today. ESMO will run from 27 September – 1 October 2019.
ESMO is the most influential oncology meeting in Europe, in partnership with the EACR (European Association for Cancer Research). The ESMO Congress is the appointment in Europe for clinicians, researchers, patient advocates, journalists and the pharmaceutical industry from all over the world to get together, learn about the latest advances in oncology and translate science into better cancer patient care.
The Company will present a poster entitled “Known and unknown gene fusion detection capabilities of solid tumour laboratories conducting next generation sequencing in 6 countries”. The Poster focusses on the current next generation sequencing (“NGS”) capabilities in solid tumour oncology laboratories to detect unknown gene fusions, and concludes that labs in the EU have not kept up with the technical advances in NGS testing due to a lack of sufficient funding, which may lead to missed opportunities for improved treatment for patients.
