SELECTMDX™ liquid biopsy genetic test

selectmdx-liquid-biopsyIf you are being considered for your primary or secondary prostate biopsy due to an elevated PSA test result you might want to consider the SelectMDx Liquid Biopsy – a noninvasive diagnostic laboratory test performed on a urine sample which measures the likelihood of discovering prostate cancer during a prostate biopsy procedure. The test measures mRNA levels of DLX1 and HOXC6 (genetic biomarkers over expressed in Patients with prostate cancer). The test has been thoroughly evaluated during clinical trials*.

SelectMDx Liquid Biopsy allows the Patient and their physician to undertake an informed decision regarding the necessity of performing primary or secondary prostate biopsy. Thus the test potentially enables the Patient to avoid any further, unnecessary, invasive diagnostic procedures and their potential complications (approx. 18% of Patients after prostate biopsy experience complications and up to 3% might require hospitalization as a result of this procedure).

HIFU CLINIC Prostate Cancer Center is the first clinic in Poland and one of the first clinics in Europe to offer this breakthrough test for its Patients.

What is the SelectMDx™ Liquid Biopsy Test?

Select MDx Liquid Biopsy is a noninvasive laboratory test performed on a urine sample which measures the expression of two genes correlated with prostate cancer presence. The test in conjunction with other risk factors (PSA history, prostate volume, patient age and family history) verified during an ultrasound scan and a subsequent urological consultation the SelectMDx Liquid Biopsy test accurately predicts the risk of discovering cancer tissue in a prostate biopsy procedure. The price of the test includes:

  • Urological consultation
  • DRE test
  • prostate gland ultrasound
  • urine sample collection and genetic analysis of the collected material

The test can also detect aggressive prostate cancer which should be treated in early stages to ensure the best long-term clinical outcome for the Patient.

What is the purpose of the SelectMDx™ Liquid Biopsy Test?

A liquid biopsy test result clearly presents the % risk of discovering prostate cancer during a prostate biopsy procedure. The test also distinguishes between low-grade and aggressive prostate cancer.
