SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NanoString Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSTG), a provider of life science tools for translational research and molecular diagnostic products, today announced that the TransATAC clinical validation study for its Prosigna Breast Cancer Prognostic Gene Signature Assay, which is based on the PAM50 gene signature, was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO)1. This study, portions of which were initially presented at the 2011 CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, evaluated the ability of three breast cancer tests to predict risk of distant recurrence after endocrine therapy in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive (HR+) early-stage breast cancer. The authors of the study concluded that the PAM50-based assay provides more prognostic information in endocrine treated patients with HR+ node negative disease than Oncotype DX®, with better differentiation of intermediate and high-risk groups.
