      "Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

      On October 16, 2012, Exact Sciences Corporation (the "Company") released new study data for its colorectal cancer screening test at the International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, a meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. The primary purpose of the study was to establish the analytical performance of the test methodology in advance of completion of the Company's pivotal clinical trial for the test (known as the DeeP-C trial). The study demonstrated 98% sensitivity for cancer. It also demonstrated promising results for detecting the pre-cancers most likely to develop into colon cancer, with 83% sensitivity for high grade dysplasia and 57% for pre-cancer = 1 cm. All sensitivities were reported at a specificity of 90%.
      The study specimens were collected at 36 study centers either before colonoscopy bowel preparation in screening and surveillance subjects, or at least seven days post-colonoscopy from subjects recruited with colorectal cancer or pre-cancers. A total of 1003 patient samples were analyzed in the study."

    • Hey Dip, it was profit taking after the Barrons article and now some weak hands thinking the trial is over in a month. Tell me why the expansion if news is going to be bad?
