Study Results from Biodesix's Immunotherapy Test Will Be Presented by Dr. Jeffrey Weber

BOULDER, Colo., March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Jeffery Weber will present data from a collaboration in which proteomic tests developed by Biodesix® could help guide therapy choices in immuno-oncology. These blood-based tests, which were developed on Biodesix’s proprietary Diagnostic Cortex™ platform, may identify patients who derive significant benefit from anti-PD-1 monotherapy and might not gain additional benefit from the addition of anti-CTLA-4 agents. Dr. Weber will make his presentation at the 4th Immunotherapy of Cancer Conference in Europe (ITOC4).

Session Title: Proteomic Test Identifies Sensitivity and Resistance to Immunotherapy in Cancer Patients

Plenary Session Date/Time: Tuesday March 21, 4:50PM

Location:  Prague Congress Center, 5 Kvetna 65, Prague, Czech Republic
