GenomeDx's Decipher Prostate and Bladder Data to be Featured in Multiple Presentations at 17th Annual Meeting of the Society of Urologic Oncology
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GenomeDx Biosciences today announced that ten presentations featuring DecipherŽ Prostate and Bladder data will be presented at the 17th Annual Meeting of the Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO), being held November 30 to December 2, 2016, at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio. Data presentations include four studies on Decipher Biopsy, five studies on Decipher Post-Op and one study focused on data highlights of GenomeDx's planned Decipher test for bladder cancer.
"Collaboration with academic researchers is a key part of our strategy to use genomic information to improve management of patients with urologic cancers. The nine studies being presented from our Decipher Prostate Cancer Classifier tests showcase the depth of validation research we continue to conduct with more than 4,000 samples already committed to studies for Decipher Biopsy alone," said Doug Dolginow, M.D., chief executive officer of GenomeDx. "In addition, we continue to see promising data come from our studies of the Decipher Bladder test, and will further evaluate this test's clinical potential."

About Decipher GRIDŽ and DecipherŽ Prostate Cancer Classifier Tests
GenomeDx's Decipher Genomics Resource Information Database (GRID) contains genomic profiles of thousands of tumors from patients with urological cancers, and is believed by GenomeDx to be the largest shared genomic expression database in urologic cancer as well as one of the world's largest global RNA expression databases using cloud-based analytics. GRID is a platform for interactive research collaboration, and may enable more rapid discovery, development, commercialization and adoption of new genomic solutions for key clinical questions in cancer treatment.
Derived from GRID, GenomeDx's Decipher Prostate Cancer Classifier tests are commercially available genomic tests that provide a genomic assessment of tumor aggressiveness for individual patients. Decipher Biopsy is indicated for men with localized prostate cancer at diagnosis, and Decipher Post-Op is indicated for men after prostate removal surgery. The Decipher tests are used by physicians to stratify patients into more accurate risk groups than determined by traditional diagnostic tools and to better determine which patients may be more likely to benefit from additional treatment. Each tumor analyzed with a Decipher test adds new data points to the GRID database, which is compiled into a Decipher GRID Profile that may reveal additional biological characteristics of the tumor for ongoing research purposes. Going beyond risk stratification, Decipher and GRID makes accessible genetic information for researchers to potentially better predict responses to therapy and more precisely guide treatment.

About GenomeDx Biosciences
GenomeDx has reimagined the use of genomics as a platform for mass collaboration to improve treatment and outcomes of people with cancer. GenomeDx has built Decipher GRID, a large and fast-growing genomics database in urologic cancer that provides a foundation for open and interactive research collaboration and knowledge creation. Using Decipher GRID and machine learning to analyze vast amounts of genomic data, GenomeDx develops and commercializes proprietary clinical tests that are intended to provide more accurate and useful diagnostic information than traditional diagnostic tools or existing genomic tests. GenomeDx's Decipher Biopsy and Decipher Post-Op are commercially available prostate cancer genomic tests that provide an assessment of tumor aggressiveness based on a patient's unique genomic profile. GenomeDx is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia and operates a clinical laboratory in San Diego, California.
