NORCROSS, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCBB & OTCQB: GTHP), announced that it will present the new design and branding of its non-invasive and painless test for the early detection of cervical precancer at two upcoming international gynecology conferences. Additionally, attendees will be briefed on results of the pivotal clinical trial of the technology by two principal investigators.
“We are excited about the new design and branding for the cervical detection technology and believe it will be well received,” said Mark L. Faupel, Ph.D., CEO and President of Guided Therapeutics, Inc. “We are also pleased to have two of our principal investigators scheduled to present findings of our clinical trial to such prestigious medical conferences.”
Dr. Leo B. Twiggs, professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, is scheduled to present Study Results of a New Test for Cervical Dysplasia: Potential Impact on Patient Management, on Monday, May 2nd from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) 59th Annual Clinical Meeting to be held April 30 - May 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. The company will display the design and brand at booth 621 beginning Monday, May 2nd.
Dr. Lisa Flowers, of Emory University and Grady Hospital of Atlanta, is scheduled to present Introducing a New Diagnostic Modality into the Standard of Care at the EUROGIN scientific meeting in Lisbon, Portugal on Tuesday, May 10th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The company will display the design and brand at booth 4.13 beginning Sunday, May 8th.
The technology, which consists of a base unit and single-patient-use calibration disposable, scans the cervix with light to identify cancer and pre-cancer painlessly and non-invasively. Guided Therapeutics’ patented biophotonic technology is able to distinguish between normal and diseased tissue by detecting biochemical and morphological changes at the cellular level. Unlike Pap or HPV tests, the Guided Therapeutics test does not require laboratory analysis or a tissue sample, is designed to provide results immediately and eliminate costly unnecessary testing.
The technology is currently under U.S. Food and Drug Administration premarket approval review. In January 2011, Guided Therapeutics was awarded ISO 13485 certification for its quality system, a precursor for the CE mark required for sales in the European Union.
