DermTech Securities Fraud Lawsuit Report

DermTech Inc. Accused of Deceptive Practices in Pigmented Lesion Assessment Test: A Call to Action for Affected Consumers"

As a consumer harm journalist, it is my duty to expose companies that engage in deceptive practices, putting profits over people's well-being. Recently, I came across a class action lawsuit filed against DermTech Inc. and others, which raises serious concerns about the company's Pigmented Lesion Assessment (PLA) test. The lawsuit, Quarford v. DermTech Inc., et al. (case no. 23-02221), alleges false advertising, misrepresentation, breaches of contract, and violations of consumer protection laws. In this article, I will provide an overview of the case and explain why it's essential for affected consumers to take action.

What did DermTech Inc. do wrong?

The complaint alleges that DermTech Inc. falsely advertised its PLA test as a reliable method for detecting skin cancer. The company claimed that the test could identify potential skin cancers with 90.8% accuracy, leading consumers to believe that it was a reliable alternative to traditional biopsies. However, the lawsuit alleges that the test's accuracy rate is significantly lower, putting consumers at risk of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis.

How does this affect consumers?

The PLA test is marketed to consumers as a non-invasive, painless way to detect skin cancer early. However, the lawsuit alleges that the test is not as effective as DermTech Inc. claims it to be. As a result, consumers who rely on the test may not receive accurate results, which could lead to delayed or incorrect treatment. This is particularly concerning for individuals who may have melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer that requires early detection and treatment.

Moreover, the lawsuit alleges that DermTech Inc. breached its contract with consumers by failing to provide accurate results. Consumers who paid for the test may have relied on the results, only to discover that they were inaccurate. This is a clear violation of consumer protection laws, which require companies to provide truthful and accurate information about their products and services.
