LEXINGTON, MA – February 18, 2011 – Predictive Biosciences today announced that the Company will be presenting results on the development of a real-time multiplexed PCR assay for detection of FGFR3 mutations in urine and tissue at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2011 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium being held February 17 – 19 in Orlando, Florida. Results will also focus on the application of the assay which is currently being used in Predictive’s first commercial molecular grading product, the CertNDxTM Molecular Grading Assay.
