Mercy BioAnalytics Receives Breakthrough Device Designation for Ovarian Cancer Screening in Asymptomatic, Postmenopausal Women (PRNewswire)
"Mercy BioAnalytics, Inc...has been granted Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of its Mercy Halo Ovarian Cancer Screening Test in asymptomatic, postmenopausal women....On June 3rd, at the upcoming ASCO meeting, Mercy will share data from their landmark study in a poster....In this study, Mercy Halo outperformed CA125 in both the ability to detect high-grade serous ovarian cancer (82% vs 63% sensitivity), and in test specificity (98% vs 96%), significantly increasing the number of cancers identified while reducing the number of false positives by almost half. The Mercy Halo test achieves high sensitivity and specificity through the simultaneous detection of multiple cancer-related biomarkers co-localized on the surface of individual tumor-associated extracellular vesicles."

Landmark study from Mercy BioAnalytics and University College London demonstrates significant improvement over CA125 and ultrasound for ovarian cancer screening (PRNewswire)
"Mercy BioAnalytics, Inc...will present data at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting next month demonstrating the first significant improvement in the early detection of ovarian cancer using a locked assay since CA125 serum biomarker testing and transvaginal ultrasound imaging were introduced nearly 40 years ago. In a large blinded, retrospective analysis of prospectively collected samples from more than 1,300 asymptomatic postmenopausal women, the Mercy Halo™ test detected 82% of high grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSC) cases up to one year prior to diagnosis with 98% specificity."

Novel Assay for Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer From Mercy BioAnalytics Significantly Outperforms CA125 in New Research Presented at ASCO Annual Meeting (Mercy Bio Press Release)
"Mercy BioAnalytics™...announced that the Mercy Halo™ Ovarian Cancer (OC) assay substantially outperformed CA125 when distinguishing patients with early-stage high-grade serious ovarian cancer (HGSOC) from women with benign conditions in a new study to be presented next week at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2022 Annual Meeting. The assay uses a novel method of analyzing biomarkers based on individual extracellular vesicles (EVs)...Mercy’s assay shows promise in improving on CA125 by distinguishing stage I/II cancer from benign ovarian tumors and could have clinical utility for both early detection and surgical referral recommendation for benign and malignant ovarian tumors,'...."
