The partnership makes it possible for patients with specific biomarkers to get early support
FT. MYERS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 24, 2022 / NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services and global oncology contract research services, announced a strategic partnership with the Biomarker Collaborative to help cancer patients who test positive for specific biomarkers connect to support groups that include patients with similar findings.
Now, when a lung cancer biomarker is identified through NeoGenomics' testing, the results will include a resource page designed to educate patients on any identified biomarker, and it will connect them to support groups and peers instantly. The resource page is a discussion starting point helping empower patients to better understand their diagnosis with the support of peers walking a similar journey.
Mark Mallon, CEO of NeoGenomics, said, "We are honored to partner with the Biomarker Collaborative to expand our patient offering and fulfill our mission of saving lives by improving patient care. This is a historic day for NeoGenomics as we continue to optimize our patient program."
The Biomarker Collaborative is a community of biomarker groups dedicated to helping patients with biomarkers live normal lives. The Biomarker Collaborative brings patients together to create a community, navigate the healthcare system, advocate, increase screening, ensure patients receive comprehensive biomarker testing, and support access to clinical trials.
Gina Hollenbeck, Co-President of the Biomarker Collaborative, said "This is a dream come true for the Biomarker Collaborative Member Groups, not only for patients who are newly-diagnosed but for patients who may not even have had a biomarker testing report ordered until well into treatment where they find out for the first time through NeoGenomics' "Patient Resource" page in the report-the biomarker that is truly driving their cancer." Added John Hallick, Co-President of the Biomarker Collaborative, "Both the patient and the patient's oncologist will now see in the actual report ordered by the oncologist and issued by NeoGenomics that there is a biomarker group directly relevant to the patient's diagnosis."
