Personalis Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results

 

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced genomics for precision oncology, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022, and provided recent business highlights.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Announced a continuing partnership with Moderna to provide genomic testing for their upcoming clinical studies evaluating mRNA-4157/V940, an investigational personalized cancer vaccine, jointly developed by Moderna and Merck
  • Partnered with Criterium and the Academic Breast Cancer Consortium (ABRCC) to conduct a prospective clinical trial to validate the clinical performance of the NeXT Personal® assay to evaluate minimal residual disease (MRD) and subsequent recurrence in patients with early-stage, resectable triple negative breast cancer (TNBC)
  • Initiated a research collaboration with University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and its new Fleur-Hiege Center for Skin Cancer Research, where Dr. Klaus Pantel, Dr. Christoffer Gebhardt, and team are using NeXT Personal to track tumor response to immunotherapy (IO) in patients with melanoma, with the aim of gathering evidence to advance the use of ultra-sensitive MRD detection in routine clinical practice for IO therapy monitoring

“We are excited to have completed our strategic review of the business, which has resulted in a new threefold focus on winning in MRD, leveraging our technology to power companies working on personalized cancer vaccines, and supporting pharmaceutical customers with clinical trials,” said Aaron Tachibana, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “Our partnership with Moderna using our NeXT Platform to provide genomic testing is an example of how we enable customers. With our sharpened focus in both our clinical and biopharma businesses, we believe we are well-positioned to advance the standard of care by transforming cancer recurrence detection and ongoing therapy monitoring.”
