Exact Sciences Corp. (NASDAQ: EXAS), a leading provider of cancer screening and diagnostic tests, today announced positive top-line results from the pivotal BLUE-C study. The results show that next-generation Cologuard® met all study endpoints and improved every top-line metric, including a 30 percent lower false positive rate, when compared to DeeP-C, the FDA registrational trial for Cologuard.

“Cologuard is a groundbreaking innovation in non-invasive cancer detection. Next-generation Cologuard will set a new performance standard,” said Kevin Conroy, chairman and CEO of Exact Sciences. “We are harnessing deep scientific insights, advanced technology, and over a decade of research and development to detect colorectal cancer with greater sensitivity and significantly improve the false positive rate. Once approved, next-generation Cologuard will meaningfully enhance the patient experience, and it comes at a critical time – when there are 60 million Americans not up to date with screening.”
