On Tuesday, EXACT Sciences Corporation (NASDAQ:EXAS)s shares declined -6.28% to $7.76.

Exact Sciences Corp. (EXAS) declared that data supporting its stool DNA (sDNA) screening platform for colorectal cancer will be presented in three posters at the American College of Gastroenterology’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ACG 2015), taking place October 16-21 in Honolulu.

It is estimated that colorectal cancer will be responsible for more than 50,000 deaths in the United States this year. The American Cancer Society recommends that Americans age 50 and older get screened for the disease. Unfortunately, according to the Centers for Disease Control, 42 percent are not current on their screening. One of the key barriers to screening compliance is that while colonoscopy is highly effective, many patients are unable or unwilling to undergo the procedure. Approved last year by the FDA, Exact Sciences’ Cologuard® is a noninvasive, patient-friendly, at-home screening test that uses advanced sDNA technology to analyze a patient-offered stool sample for the presence of altered DNA from abnormal cancerous or precancerous cells known to be associated with colon cancer and blood.

  • The first poster, Colorectal Cancer Screening with Multi-target stool DNA-based Testing Previous Screening History of the Initial Patient Cohort, shows that a clinically noteworthy proportion of initial Cologuard users, 42 percent, age 50-74, the primary target age for screening , stated no previous colorectal cancer screening, while 36 percent of users over all were similarly unscreened formerly. These data suggest that the availability of Cologuard as a screening option may assist enhance the number of patients who get screened.
  • In a second poster, Multi-target stool DNA based Colorectal Screening Modeling the Impact of Inter-test Interval on Clinical Effectiveness, researchers looked at the decrease in colorectal cancer incidence and colorectal cancer death with sDNA screening contrast to colonoscopy at various intervals. The study found that screening with Cologuard at three-year intervals could reduce colorectal cancer death by 67 percent.
  • In a third poster, Preferences for Colorectal Screening Tests Among a Formerly Unscreened Population, a newly accomplished patient preference study, corroborating the finding of the two formerly published preference studies, finds that screen-naïve patients, who intend to be screened within the next year, prefer colonoscopy (40 percent) and multi-target sDNA (35 percent) significantly more often than FOBT or FIT (9-10 percent) or flexile sigmoidoscopy (4 percent). There was no noteworthy preference difference between colonoscopy and multi-target sDNA, but the difference between colonoscopy and multi-target sDNA contrast to the other three tests was significant.

Exact Sciences Corporation, a molecular diagnostics company, focuses on developing non-invasive colorectal cancer screening products. The company develops the Cologuard, a non-invasive stool-based DNA colorectal cancer screening test that is designed to detect pre-cancerous lesions or polyps, and each of the four stages of colorectal cancer.
