ClearNote Health will be presenting at the 41st Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference

SAN DIEGO–(COMMERCIAL THREAD)–ClearNote Health™ (formerly known as Bluestar Genomics), a cancer tracking company committed to enabling people at risk of high-fatality cancers to live longer, healthier lives, today announced that Chief Executive Officer Dave Mullarkey will present a company update at the 41st Annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference on Wednesday, January 11 at 2:30pm PST. Mullarkey will speak about the company’s ongoing clinical validation and commercialization efforts in a multi-test portfolio. The Avantect™ portfolio for early cancer detection includes the recently launched pancreatic cancer test, now available for medical order in patients over the age of 50 with type 2 diabetes diagnosed within the past three years.

“Our company has made tremendous progress over the past year in preparing for commercialization of the Avantect pancreatic cancer test, building an international distribution strategy, and planning a multi-product portfolio,” Mullarkey said.This is a game-changer for the company as we turn our focus from validating a single test to developing, validating and commercializing a suite of cancer detection solutions to meet the needs of high-risk cancer patients with limited screening and poor results, including pancreatic and ovarian cancers.

Current trends suggest that pancreatic cancer is poised to become the second leading cause of cancer death within this decade. The Avantect pancreatic cancer test, which received a Breakthrough Device designation from the FDA in 2021, is designed to enable early diagnosis for high-risk patients. Launched in 2022, the test combines the latest capabilities based on epigenomic hydroxymethylation and genomic analysis with machine learning to detect the presence or absence of an abnormal pancreatic cancer signal in blood-free DNA.

Following a successful validation study of the Avantect Pancreatic Cancer Test whose data was presented at the American Pancreatic Association meeting in 2022, the company is currently conducting the New Onset Diabetes Management for Early Detection (NODMED) study, a of the largest clinical trials to date in pancreatic cancer. The multicenter study is currently enrolling patients recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, a population with an eight times increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
