Response Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RGDX), a company focused on the development and sale of molecular diagnostic tests for cancer, announced today that company founder, CEO and president, Kathleen Danenberg, will present at the 2011 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium in San Francisco, January 20-22.
Ms. Danenberg will discuss the use of predictive and prognostic markers in the treatment of esophageal-gastric cancers during the “Cancers of the Esophagus and Stomach: Translational Research” session, scheduled from 9:45 AM – 1:15 AM, on January 20.
“Based upon strong scientific and medical evidence, the use of predictive biomarkers is gaining acceptance in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers,” said Kathleen Danenberg. “Already, certain molecular markers appear to viably predict therapeutic response, and others are being actively investigated. By working together, the cancer care community is helping to optimize treatment decisions for the benefit of patients.”
