SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA) – a leading precision medicine company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers – today announced a publication in Kidney360 of a multicenter study that demonstrates the clinical performance of AlloSure and AlloMap to inform biopsy and treatment decisions following kidney transplantation.
KidneyCare is CareDx’s multimodality solution that includes AlloSure and AlloMap, and is now clinically validated using data from fourteen leading kidney-transplant centers and hospitals across the United States. AlloSure is a measure of donor derived cfDNA, which identifies organ injury, and AlloMap is a measure of gene expression, which identifies immune quiescence. The Kidney360 publication demonstrates the ability of AlloMap to differentiate between rejection and immune quiescence using a range of scores, and shows that AlloMap is complementary to AlloSure, yielding a combined AUC of 0.894. Together, these biomarkers offer a comprehensive assessment of kidney health compared to the current standard of care.
“CareDx has been an innovator in multimodality solutions with the launch of HeartCare, which includes AlloSure and AlloMap for heart transplant patients and is now utilized by the majority of heart transplant centers. We are using this deep expertise to bring multimodality care to the kidney transplant community with KidneyCare,” said Reg Seeto, CEO at CareDx.
“Multi-modality solutions like KidneyCare offer real-time readouts of two different biomarkers, each with critical information about allograft risk and rejection,” said Enver Akalin, MD, Montefiore. “Complementary testing using next-generation genomic-expression testing represents a significant advance in post-surgical kidney care.”
