Cynvenio Offers New Breast Cancer Therapy Finder Application for its ClearID Breast Cancer Genomic Test
Date:1/15/2014

Westlake Village, Calif. (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

Cynvenio, a cancer diagnostics company focused on transforming cancer treatment and management through the genomic analysis of tumor cells in the bloodstream, today announced that it will offer Therapy Finder™, a web-based cancer decision support application powered by CollabRx, Inc.

Available as a reporting option with Cynvenio’s ClearID™ genomic test, Therapy Finder will provide breast cancer patients and their physicians with a dynamic resource to navigate and understand both the current standard of care as well as cutting edge experimental therapy options with the goal of enabling patients to receive the best possible care. ClearID customers will gain access to focused news and patient-oriented educational material on advances in breast cancer, the latest medical and scientific research, risk factors for recurrence, monitoring, and early detection. The breast cancer Therapy Finder is dynamically updated and curated by CollabRx medical and scientific personnel with the support of an editorial board composed of independent breast cancer clinical experts. The Therapy Finder for Breast Cancer is the most recent electronic decision support application released by CollabRx and complements existing Therapy Finders for lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and melanoma. It is the first such app developed specifically for a patient user.

ClearID is Cynvenio’s monitoring test for breast cancer survivors at high risk of disease recurrence. It analyzes DNA from tumor cells in the bloodstream for cancer-associated genomic mutations which can be used to characterize disease status and available treatment options. Through the partnership with CollabRx, clinicians and researchers ordering ClearID tests from Cynvenio will also have the option of requesting genomic reporting via the Genetic Variant Annotation (GVA) ServiceTM which provides clinically actionable and dynamically updated data.

“This collaboration will directly benefit breast cancer patients, survivors and their physicians by providing them with two powerful integrated tools,” said André de Fusco, Cynvenio’s CEO. “The ClearID Breast Cancer test offers genomic insights from a standard blood draw analyzed by next gen sequencing. By pairing ClearID with the CollabRx Therapy Finder we can now take into account an individual patient’s molecular (tumor) data when offering the latest insights into breast cancer treatments. This is a milestone in our efforts to provide individualized breast cancer screening and surveillance.”

“The CollabRx Therapy Finder for breast cancer provides patients with an up-to-date and easily accessible tool to navigate therapy considerations that incorporate molecular data and also receive curated news that pertains to their disease,” said Thomas Mika, Chairman, President & CEO of CollabRx. “We are excited to collaborate with Cynvenio on its introduction with the goal of providing metastatic breast cancer patients with an easy to use tool to aid in treatment planning by contexualizing the state of scientific and medical research backed by sound science.”
