"By launching this test, we continue down our committed path of improving patient outcomes as well as reducing overall treatment costs." Robert Embree, CEO
IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) May 24, 2023
EmeritusDX, a rapidly growing cancer diagnostics and information company, today announced the commercial availability of MetaDX™, a PCR-based assay designed to provide personalized treatment guidance for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. Performed on biopsied prostate tissue, MetaDX™ measures the AR-V7/AR-WT Ratio to predict the patient’s resistance to Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) early on in the treatment process.
"MetaDX™ addresses an important treatment decision for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer," said Robert Embree, Chief Executive Officer, EmeritusDX. "By launching this test, we continue down our committed path of improving patient outcomes as well as reducing overall treatment costs."
Advanced prostate cancer tends to be hormone sensitive and is often treated with androgen deprivation therapy. However, resistance to this therapy can develop through first, second, and third lines of therapy. “Our goal is to alert physicians when resistance to therapy is identified in these patients so that effective alternative treatments are provided in the earliest possible phase.”
The MetaDX™ assay is currently available from EmeritusDX’s Irvine, CA laboratory. The test is performed on paraffin embedded prostate tissue and is reported out within 3-5 days. Clients have the option of ordering this test as a reflex or on demand.
