Guardant Health to Present New Data from its Broad Portfolio of Blood Tests at 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting

May 23, 2022
  • Oral presentation in Clinical Science Symposium will demonstrate use of real-world data from GuardantINFORM to identify resistance to early treatment in advanced breast cancer
  • Oral presentation in Breast Cancer-Metastatic Session will highlight updated progression-free survival data of fulvestrant plus capivasertib versus fulvestrant plus placebo in metastatic breast cancer using enhanced biomarker analysis

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Guardant Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GH), a leading precision oncology company, announced today it will present new data at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting from June 3-7 in Chicago. Among the 19 abstracts are oral presentations highlighting the use of real-world data to identify resistance to early treatment in advanced breast cancer and the use of enhanced biomarker analysis to evaluate progression-free survival data in metastatic breast cancer therapy.

“We look forward to sharing an array of robust data at ASCO that demonstrate the utility of our blood tests to help healthcare professionals optimize care for patients at all stages of the disease—from detecting early-stage cancers to identifying the presence of residual disease and delivering insights that inform treatment to improve outcomes,” said Helmy Eltoukhy, Guardant Health co-CEO. “We’ll be presenting data from retrospective and real-world analyses that show how blood-based tests provide critical insights at every step of a patient’s treatment journey, and analytics that contribute to the broader scientific community’s understanding of some of the most challenging cancers.”
