PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - December 06, 2012) -

MolecularMD Corp. announced today that it will present data at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology conference, pertaining to the development of a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) test for detection of resistant mutations in patients diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML).

The poster presentation demonstrates MolecularMD's leadership as a provider of innovative and reliable molecular diagnostic solutions for CML patients treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs).

MolecularMD provides molecular diagnostic testing to support several phase II and phase III trials of ABL TKIs, including the investigational BCR-ABL inhibitor ponatinib. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently accepted the ponatinib New Drug Application (NDA) for filing and accelerated review.

MolecularMD scientists will present a poster describing development and clinical validation of a BCR-ABL1 Next-Generation Sequencing Assay.
