HAYWARD, Calif., April 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Predicine, a global molecular insights company, announced today that it will present two studies and introduce PredicineALERT Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) liquid biopsy assay to genitourinary (GU) cancers at the 2023 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting held in Chicago between April 28 to May 1, 2023.

In collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center, Predicine will present a podium presentation and two posters demonstrating the clinical utility and potential of Predicine’s liquid biopsy platform in bladder cancer and other solid tumors. Highlights from the studies include PredicineCARE, urinary tumor DNA detection in treatment-naïve upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). A second study demonstrates the high concordance of genomic alterations between index and repeat transurethral resection lesions in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) even when pathologic upstaging occurs.

A complete list of posters at AUA 2023:

  • Characterizing variability in genomic alterations between index and repeat transurethral resection lesions in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer – Friday April 28,2023, 1:00pm – 3:00pm CST (a collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida)
  • Utility of urinary tumor DNA detection in treatment-naïve UTUC – Monday, May 1,2023, 1:20pm – 1:30pm CST (a collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida)

PredicineALERT provides a tumor-naive approach to MRD testing for GU cancers. Key highlights include methylation-based MRD detection without the need of personalization, fast turn-around-time (TAT) down to 6 days, and low sample input using 2.5ng of cfDNA.

“Predicine is excited to bring the tumor-naïve MRD assay to the GU space and provide new solution to enable organ preservation for patients with bladder cancer,” said Shidong Jia, Founder and global CEO of Predicine. “Currently, we are working closely with leading biopharma partners and KOLs on liquid biopsy studies in support of clinical trials, CDx development and commercialization.”
