About Prostatype Genomics

The company Prostatype Genomics AB was founded in 2007 as a spin off from Cancer Center Karolinska (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden).To date, 15 years of research work in the area of prostate cancer genomics has resulted in the development of a market-ready product, providing decision support for treatment selection of prostate cancer patients: The Prostatype® Test System. The system is based on a gene expression test, which measures the expression of three carefully selected embryonic stem cell genes in prostate cancer core needle biopsies. In conjunction with currently used clinical parameters, the PrTS predicts overall survival in relation to treatment.

Vision & Mission
The Prostatype® Test System – a new gene test for prostate cancer patients
Our vision is that doctors and patients, confronted with diagnosed prostate cancer, have full confidence in their treatment decisions.

Prostatype Genomics mission is to make a difference in prostate cancer patients’ lives through the discovery and commercialization of transformative tests to guide treatment decisions. We can thereby increase quality of life and peace-of-mind for patients and simultaneously reduce health care costs. Prostatype Genomics will achieve this by making PrTS the global test system of choice for newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients.

How it works
The Prostatype® Test System is a new gene test that provides:
• Prognosis of survival
• Decision support for various treatment options
The Prostatype® Test System combines gene expression information with the currently used clinical parameters (PSA, Gleason Score, Tumour Stage, and age). Based on a unique database containing authentic information from 600 historic prostate cancer patients, the Prostatype® Test System provides decision support for patients and doctors when making a treatment decision. This reduces the risk of over- or undertreatment and can postpone repeated biopsies.

Results
Based on the genetic profile and clinical data of the patient, the P-Score is estimated. The P-Score indicates the aggressiveness of the tumour. The prostate cancer-specific mortality risk at 10 years for a patient with a low P-Score (green) is below 3.4%, for an intermediate P-Score (yellow) it is below 10.8%. In addition, the software identifies the three most similar reference patients from an authentic historic database. The treatment, survival time and cause of death of the reference patients is displayed and serve as a decision support when choosing the optimal treatment for the patient.
