About OncoCyte Corporation
OncoCyte is a molecular diagnostics company providing actionable answers at critical decision points across the lung cancer care continuum, with the goal of improving patient outcomes by accelerating and optimizing diagnosis and treatment. The company is currently developing a treatment stratification test that enables the identification of early-stage lung cancer patients at high risk for recurrence, allowing them to be treated when their cancer is still responsive to adjuvant chemotherapy.
