Natera to Present New Data at the 2024 SGO Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer, Following Recent Medicare Coverage Decisions in Ovarian and Breast Cancers

Natera, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRA), a global leader in cell-free DNA testing, today announced new data being presented on its personalized and tumor-informed molecular residual disease (MRD) test, Signatera™, and hereditary cancer test, Empower™, at the 2024 Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer taking place March 16-18, 2024.

A total of seven abstracts will be presented, including two oral presentations and five poster presentations. The presentations will feature new data highlighting Signatera’s predictive and prognostic utility in ovarian cancer and other gynecologic malignancies.

“On the heels of receiving Medicare coverage for Signatera in ovarian cancer and for breast cancer in the neoadjuvant setting, we are thrilled to share new Signatera and Empower data with the gynecologic oncology community,” said Adam ElNaggar, MD, medical director of oncology at Natera. “We believe this momentum is indicative of the growing clinical value our tests provide for patients across the continuum of gynecologic cancer care, and demonstrate our continued leadership in MRD.”

About Signatera

Signatera is a personalized, tumor-informed, molecular residual disease test for patients previously diagnosed with cancer. Custom-built for each individual, Signatera uses circulating tumor DNA to detect and quantify cancer left in the body, identify recurrence earlier than standard of care tools, and help optimize treatment decisions. The test is available for clinical and research use and is covered by Medicare for patients with colorectal cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and muscle invasive bladder cancer, as well as for immunotherapy monitoring of any solid tumor. Signatera has been clinically validated across multiple cancer types and indications, with published evidence in more than 50 peer-reviewed papers.
