RedPath Announces Presentations at 2014 Digestive Disease Week Meeting

PITTSBURGH --(Business Wire)--

RedPath Integrated Pathology, Inc., a leader in molecular diagnostics, announced today that data from The National Pancreatic Cyst Registry, a multi-institutional prospective study of 492 patients with pancreatic cysts, has been accepted for oral presentation at the Digestive Disease Week (DDW) Annual Meeting taking place May 3-6, 2014, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Results from the study show that, when cytology results are non-malignant, integrated molecular pathology (IMP) can accurately differentiate cysts with low versus high malignant potential by incorporating DNA molecular analyses with first-line tests (cytologic atypia, CEA, imaging).

Dr. Thomas Kowalski, Director of Gastroenterology and Associate Professor of Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University will present the data on Tuesday, May 6 at 2:20pm (CT).

In addition, research data on the use of IMP in patient management of pancreatic cysts will be presented in a poster on Monday, May 5, 2014, and data on the use of IMP in Barrett's Esophagus will be presented in a poster on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
