Guardant Health to present real-world data supporting performance of Shield™ blood test for colorectal cancer screening at 2024 Digestive Disease Week

Guardant Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GH), a leading precision oncology company, today announced it will present data from two real-world studies at the 2024 Digestive Disease Week (DDW) meeting in Washington, DC, highlighting the value of the company’s Shield™ test in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening.

“One in three eligible American adults have not been screened for CRC, in part because the currently available methods are unpleasant or inconvenient,” said AmirAli Talasaz, co-CEO of Guardant Health. “The data we will share at DDW underscores the important role that our Shield blood test can have in both improving screening rates and in detecting more colorectal cancer at an early stage, when it is most treatable. We look forward to sharing this important data at DDW.”

The data served as the basis for Guardant Health’s submission of a premarket approval (PMA) application to the FDA, and the full study results have since been published in the March 2024 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine. An FDA Advisory Panel is scheduled to review the PMA application on May 23.
