MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Exact Sciences Corp. (EXAS) will announce the preliminary, top-line results of its DeeP-C pivotal clinical trial on Thursday, April 18, 2013, prior to the market open. The company will host a webcast and conference call to discuss the results that morning at 7:30 ET.
The DeeP-C study, one of the largest of its kind, included more than 10,000 patients and evaluated the use of the company’s stool-based DNA screening test for the early detection of colorectal cancer. It was conducted among a population of patients between the ages of 50 and 84 who were at average risk of colorectal cancer. The results of the DeeP-C trial are expected to form the basis of the company’s submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for pre-market approval (PMA) of the convenient, non-invasive test.
