Bionano Genomics Announces Publication of Study in MDS and AML Showing Utility for Refined Diagnostics and Prognostic Stratification
In the study published in
Additional findings of the study:
- The R-IPSS score was changed for 6 cases, which could impact prognosis or assist in patient stratification.
- In 8 cases, OGM found clinically significant events (mainly complex cytogenetics).
- OGM also detected balanced structural variants (SVs) identifying partner genes of driver genes not routinely identified by other techniques.
“What is gratifying about this study is that it confirms the conclusions that were reported by MD Anderson regarding MDS and it extends that work to include AML. These are areas where innovation can play a big role in improvements in patient management as well as the development of new approaches in disease diagnosis and treatment,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano Genomics.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “may,” “could,” “believe” and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events, conditions or circumstances) convey uncertainty of future events or outcomes and are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs, projections, outlook, analyses or current expectations concerning, among other things, the ability and utility of OGM to detect SVs in MDS or AML, the utility and adoption of using OGM in determining prognostic scores for MDS and AML, and the ability of OGM to detect clinically relevant SVs and provide a more comprehensive analysis of the genome for applications in genetic disease and cancer. Each of these forward-looking statements involves risks and uncertainties. Actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected or implied in these forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such a difference include the risks and uncertainties associated with: the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and the global economy; general market conditions; changes in the competitive landscape and the introduction of competitive technologies or improvements to existing technologies; failure of future study results to support those demonstrated in the paper referenced in this press release; failure OGM to detect clinically relevant SVs in MDS or AML; failure of the market to adopt the use of OGM into new prognostic scoring methods for myeloid malignancies; our ability to obtain sufficient financing to fund our strategic plans and commercialization efforts; the ability of medical and research institutions to obtain funding to support adoption or continued use of our technologies; and the risks and uncertainties associated with our business and financial condition in general, including the risks and uncertainties described in our filings with the
