SAN CARLOS, Calif., Could 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Natera, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRA), a pioneer and world chief in cell-free DNA testing, immediately introduced the achievement of key recruitment milestones within the ProActive registry research and success within the Prospera early entry program.
The ProActive research will comply with 3,000 kidney transplant sufferers over a 3 to 5 12 months interval to look at the utility of the Prospera donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) transplant evaluation check to precisely establish organ rejection. The research is outpacing Natera’s enrollment expectations with 18 prime transplant facilities already activated, extra coming on-line within the close to future, and 145 sufferers at the moment enrolled.
“The ProActive trial is a big, potential registry research designed to offer useful insights on medical biomarkers, biopsy utilization and medical outcomes. Participation by prime transplant facilities within the U.S. is resulting in rising enrollment and accumulation of vital knowledge. It’s notable that is taking place even throughout these tough occasions for our transplant sufferers and facilities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrating the fortitude and dedication of transplant professionals to the way forward for the sphere. I’m assured this trial will enhance the care of our sufferers and look ahead to the outcomes,” mentioned Jonathan Bromberg, M.D., Professor of Surgical procedure and Microbiology and Immunology, Vice Chair for Analysis on the College of Maryland College of Medication, and Principal Investigator of the ProActive research.
Within the Prospera early entry program, Natera has acquired assessments from 45% of the highest 50 and 37% of the highest 100 transplant facilities by quantity. “The robust curiosity in Prospera and the numerous variety of prime facilities ordering assessments throughout the early entry program displays a want for extra correct, non-invasive testing strategies, which Prospera fulfills by its potential to establish rejection with larger accuracy than first technology dd-cfDNA assessments and present requirements of care,”1,2 mentioned Paul Billings, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer and SVP of Medical Affairs at Natera.

In regards to the Prospera dd-cfDNA Organ Transplant Check
The Prospera check leverages Natera’s core single-nucleotide (SNP)-based massively multiplexed PCR (mmPCR) expertise to establish allograft rejection non-invasively and with excessive precision and accuracy, with out the necessity for prior donor or recipient genotyping. The check works by measuring the fraction of donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) within the recipient’s blood. It might be utilized by physicians contemplating the analysis of lively rejection, serving to to rule in or out this situation when evaluating the necessity for diagnostic testing or the outcomes of an invasive biopsy. Prospera has been clinically and analytically validated for efficiency no matter donor relatedness, rejection kind, and medical presentation. The check described has been developed and its efficiency traits decided by the CLIA-certified laboratory performing the check. The check has not been cleared or authorized by the US Meals and Drug Administration (FDA). Though FDA has usually not enforced the premarket overview and different FDA authorized necessities for laboratory-developed assessments within the U.S., certification of the laboratory is required underneath CLIA to make sure the standard and validity of the assessments.
