Three IndiTreat® posters have been accepted at the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer, hosted in Barcelona by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) from June 29th to July 2nd 2022.

2cureX, a company pioneering the use of 3D tumoroids for drug sensitivity prediction in patients with cancer, announced today that the three IndiTreat® posters submitted to the ESMO GI conference by the company and its clinical partners University Clinic Eppendorf – Hamburg, Germany – and University Hospital Vejle – Vejle, Denmark – have been accepted by the organization and will be presented and discussed at the conference.

The posters:

  • #546: In vitro drug screening of patient-derived 3D tumoroids replicates resistance to FOLFOX, FOLFIRI, and FOLFOXIRI in clinically resistant patients with metastatic colorectal cancer
  • #212: Precision oncology without biomarkers: Assessing drug sensitivity in patient-derived tumoroids to guide mCRC 3rd line therapy
  • #668: In vitro drug screening of patient-specific tumoroids to predict chemotherapeutic treatment response in Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma: An interim analysis

… highlight the benefits of the current IndiTreat® products (mCRC Start, mCRC Extend and mCRC Explore) as well as the advances in developing a new application for Pancreatic cancer.

Focusing on the impact on first-line mCRC patients

“It is exciting to see that all the abstracts we submitted have been accepted”, says Ole Thastrup, 2cureX’s CSO. “Our focus last year was on the positive impact of the IndiTreat® test for third-line metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients. This year we are emphasizing the impact on first-line mCRC patients, as well as the progress of our Pancreatic cancer project”.

Three posters, booth and important discussions with European oncologists

Fernando Andreu, CEO of 2cureX: “It’s the first time that 2cureX is present at a conference with three posters. ESMO GI is the most powerful meeting of GI oncologists in Europe. Beyond our scientific presence, we will have a booth that will give us a fantastic opportunity to discuss the IndiTreat® products and the IGNITE program with oncologists from all over Europe”.
