Findings from studies investigating clinical validity of non-invasive cancer-mutation monitoring platform will be shared for first time at AACR-NCI-EORTC conference on October 21, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trovagene, Inc. (NASDAQ: TROV), a developer of cell-free molecular diagnostics, announced today that two abstracts (#B175 and #B177) highlighting results from studies of the company's novel, non-invasive cancer mutation monitoring platform will be presented on October 21, 2013 at the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics in Boston, MA.
