By September 28, 2023October 30th, 2023No Comments

Waltham, MA., September 28, 2023 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Naveris, Inc. , the leader in precision oncology diagnostics for viral-induced cancers, today announced that the company will be attending The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNSF) 2023 Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tenn., from September 30-October 4 and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2023 Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., from October 1-4.


Naveris will be exhibiting at both meetings, providing the latest information on NavDx®, Naveris’ proprietary flagship blood test for tumor tissue modified viral (TTMV®)-HPV DNA. NavDx is the first and only clinically validated circulating tumor HPV DNA blood test that provides a non-invasive and precise method for detecting molecular residual disease (MRD) before there is clinical or radiographical evidence of cancer recurrence.


The company will also highlight its TTMV-DNA platform in abstracts selected for oral presentation at both meetings.


“There is growing enthusiasm for the use of NavDx in daily practice across the continuum of HPV-driven OPSCC care, especially in the surveillance setting,” said Barry M. Berger, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Naveris. “We look forward to this new data at the upcoming AAO-HNSF and ASTRO conferences, adding to the accumulation of compelling evidence that is driving clinical adoption of NavDx.”
