About ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer
 Over 650,000 American men
receive a negative prostate biopsy result each year; though
approximately 25% of these men may still harbor occult prostate
cancer. This well-documented risk of undetected cancer, often with
clinically significant Gleason scores, leads to a high rate of repeat
biopsies with over 40% of men receiving at least one repeat biopsy,
and many receiving a 3rd and 4th biopsy. Today's gold standard
diagnostic approach is the prostate biopsy procedure, collecting
10-12 needle core biopsy samples, however this sampling represents
less than 1% of a man's prostate. ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer is
an epigenetic assay to help urologists distinguish patients who have
a true-negative biopsy from those at risk for occult cancer. The test
is able to detect an epigenetic field effect or "halo" associated
with the cancerization process at the DNA level in cells adjacent to
cancer foci. This molecular "halo" around a cancer lesion can be
present despite having a normal appearance under the microscope. The
test helps urologists rule out prostate cancer-free men from
undergoing unnecessary repeat biopsies and helps rule in high-risk
patients who may require repeat biopsies and potential treatment.
