SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28, 2018

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Sciences, Inc. (Epic) announced today that they will be presenting new data on inter- and intra-patient phenotypic heterogeneity and the use of HER2 and AR expression in metastatic breast cancer circulating tumor cells at the 2018 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) from December 4 - 8 in San Antonio, TX. Epic will be showcasing this data during the Detection/Diagnosis: Circulating Tumor Cells session on December 6.

"Profiling single tumor cells for functional protein, morpohologic and genomic differences provides novel insights into understanding of tumor heterogeneity as it relates to clinical progression," said Ryan Dittamore, chief of medical innovation at Epic Sciences. "We expect that our use of single cell pheno-genomics will enable insight into therapeutic resistance and may identify novel therapeutic opportunities in metastatic breast cancer."
