Universal DX Presents Methylation Biomarker Data at AACR Special Conference: Precision Prevention, Early Detection, and Interception of Cancer (Universal DX Press Release)
"Universal Diagnostics...announced the results of a study evaluating putative methylation markers in biological context of early colorectal cancer (CRC) development...Study results...KEGG pathway analysis revealed that the top pathways involved were axonal guidance, ephrin receptor signaling, epithelial-mesenchymal transition and FGF signaling, all which play a significant role in the context of cancer development and progression...Targeted methylation sequencing on plasma samples of patients with early stage (I-IIA) colorectal cancer (26 patients from Ukraine and Germany) and age and gender matching colonoscopy-verified controls (from same cohort), showed high individual marker accuracy with AUC > 0.73; Kaplan-Meier analysis showed significant correlation to patients’ 5- year survival prediction linked to 3 genes: FGF14 (p=0.025, HR = 1.75), DPY19L2P1 (p=0.012, HR = 1.86), PTPRO (p=0.046, HR = 1.63)."
