SAN DIEGO, May 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — GenomeDx Biosciences today announced that multiple studies featuring clinical data from the company’s Decipher platform will be presented at the 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago and published in the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting Proceedings. Four of the abstracts feature validation data for the Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier, a genomic test for predicting cancer metastasis. One presentation features a genomic classifier developed from the Decipher platform for predicting treatment resistance in patients with bladder cancer.

About Decipher®

The Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier is a highly validated and commercially available genomic test for men with intermediate and high risk prostate cancer. Decipher predicts cancer aggressiveness by looking for a unique genomic signature comprised of a validated series of biomarkers associated with metastatic disease. Adding truly unique information to the treatment decision-making process, Decipher generates a risk result that is completely independent and distinct from PSA, Gleason score and other clinical risk factors. Clinical studies from leading cancer centers published in over a dozen medical journals demonstrate that Decipher can accurately predict metastatic disease, which men may benefit from radiation therapy following prostate surgery, and can lead to significant cost-savings for healthcare systems. Decipher was developed in partnership with the Mayo Clinic.

Decipher is covered by Medicare and multiple private insurance plans and is available to eligible US patients through their physicians.
