FORT MYERS, FL–(Marketwired – December 06, 2017) – NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services, announced today that its physicians and scientists will present four posters and deliver two oral presentations at the American Society of Hematology's Annual Meeting. The presentations will highlight NeoGenomics' experience with liquid biopsy testing, and characterization of mutational profiles in the context of hematological disease clonal evolution and progression.

The analyses were done using novel approaches to analyze cell-free DNA/RNA and variant allele frequency. The diseases to be discussed include Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Clonal Hematopoiesis of Indeterminate Potential (CHIP), and Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

NeoGenomics Chairman and CEO, Douglas VanOort, said “NeoGenomics' commitment to medical and scientific research and development is evidenced by our team's presentations at this year's American Society of Hematology meeting. Clearly, our scientific advances in molecular diagnostics are providing physicians with a better understanding of cancer, and helping to improve the lives of patients.”

“The presented research aims to improve prediction of clinical behavior of hematologic neoplasms to provide better tools to treating physicians for selecting therapy and improving outcomes,” said Dr. Maher Albitar, Chief Medical Officer and Director of R&D, who is also the senior author of these studies.

The presentations will take place during the following times:
