DermTech Announces Positive Topline Results From a Study Evaluating the DermTech Melanoma Test (DMT) Across All Skin Types (Businesswire)
"DermTech, Inc...today reported positive topline results from a study evaluating the foundational gene expression assay component of the DermTech Melanoma Test (DMT) across all skin types in the real-world clinical setting...Using follow-up information and biopsy results from a large registry database that also served as the basis for the Company’s recently completed Trust 2 Study, this study compared the DMT’s performance in patients with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes I-III (n=4,152) to its performance in patients with skin phototypes IV-VI (n=130)....The negative predictive value (NPV) for both groups (I-III and IV-VI) was greater than 99%, and the 95% confidence interval for the difference in NPV between the groups indicated that there was no significant difference between the skin phototype groups."
