Guardant Health to showcase new data at ESMO 2022 demonstrating utility of its portfolio of blood tests for advanced-stage cancer patients

September 6, 2022

Presentations to highlight role of liquid biopsy tests and real-world data to identify biomarkers, predict patient response to therapy, and detect resistance mechanisms in late-stage cancers

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Guardant Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GH), a leading precision oncology company, announced today that new data from its portfolio of blood tests will be presented at the 2022 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress, September 9-13 in Paris, France. Among the seven abstracts are an oral presentation and posters highlighting the use of Guardant Health’s blood tests and real-world evidence dataset to advance cancer therapy trials, predict and monitor patient response to therapy, and identify genomic mechanisms of acquired resistance to cancer therapy.

“We look forward to sharing new data at ESMO demonstrating the utility of our blood tests to increase the understanding of potential new biomarker targets and the mechanisms of therapy resistance in patients with cancer,” said Helmy Eltoukhy, Guardant Health co-CEO. “The data from retrospective and real-world analyses show how comprehensive genomic profiling tests provide critical insights at every step of a patient’s treatment journey, and ultimately contribute to the development of more effective therapies and improved patient outcomes.”
