Revenues decrease was primarily related to lower Dana Farber Cancer Institute sample volume as the trial's enrollment approaches completion. The increase in net loss was primarily due to the deployment of the Company's sales and marketing function, as well as increased research and development costs driven by efforts to bring new test panels and biomarkers to market. For the nine months, the company reported revenue of $57,794 against $115,445 a year ago. Loss from operating was $10,142,666 against $5,885,885 a year ago.

Biocept, Inc. Launches Lung Cancer Liquid Biopsy Testing

Biocept, Inc. announced the launch of its lung cancer liquid biopsy testing that will be performed at the Company's CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited laboratory. By launching blood-based biomarker testing for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), along with the previously commercialized breast cancer offering, Biocept is providing options for health care providers and researchers when a tumor biopsy is not available, is unsafe to perform or when additional information is desired. For patients with recurrent or newly diagnosed metastatic lung cancer, accurate identification of genomic biomarker information is a key piece of information that clinicians need when making treatment decisions. A challenge for physicians has been availability of tissue from the surgical biopsy that is required to perform the biomarker testing. This limitation occurs as a result of tumor location or health of the patient. When lung biopsies are attempted, there is a 19.3% risk of complication such as a collapsed lung or an infection. Managing these complications quadruples the cost of care. In comparison, the cost of a simple blood draw is nominal, and poses little risk for patients, and the Company believes it has the potential to simultaneously save cost and improve outcomes for the health care system. The Company's first CLIA-validated assay for lung cancer will be testing for ALK fusions on CTCs captured in Biocept's patented device. ALK is incorporated into the testing guidelines utilized by oncologists when making treatment decisions in NSCLC patients. ALK positive patients now have targeted treatment options with two key drugs that have been approved by the FDA: the first is Pfizer's Xalkori (Crizotinib) and the second is Novartis's Zykadia (ceritinib), and others are in development. The company currently plans to offer additional biomarkers for lung cancer that physicians use when making treatment decisions before the end of the year and during 2015, including EGFR mutations, Ros1 fusions, KRAS mutations, and EGFR and MET amplification. EGFR mutation status, like ALK, is a biomarker included in guidelines that oncologists follow to determine the best treatment plan for a patient. Patients who have EGFR mutations are eligible for Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors such as Tarceva(R) from Genentech or Iressa(R) from AstraZeneca. In addition, the Company is validating important resistance markers for these targeted therapies that they expect to be used most often when physicians are monitoring patients.
