About Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier
Decipher® is a genomic test that provides an assessment of tumor aggressiveness and is used by radiation oncologists and urologists to determine who to treat and how to treat them in order to offer the most effective and least harmful course of therapy. Decipher offers valuable insight that is distinct from clinical measures of risk including PSA and Gleason score. Studies of thousands of patients from leading cancer centers, published in more than 20 peer-reviewed journals, demonstrate that Decipher can accurately predict metastatic disease, identify patients most likely to benefit from therapeutic intervention, and lead to significant cost-savings for healthcare systems by reducing unnecessary procedures. Decipher is covered by Medicare and multiple private insurance plans in the US representing over 190 million covered lives.

About Decipher GRID™
The Decipher Genomic Resource Information Database (Decipher GRID™) is the world's largest clinically-annotated genomic expression database in urologic cancer created to enable improvements to precision medicine in patient care. GRID unifies a patient's whole genome data with clinical outcomes from thousands of patients evaluated with Decipher®, providing unprecedented data sharing capabilities. Ultimately, GRID will use patient tumor genomic information to better match an individual to a targeted therapy with the highest likelihood of providing a benefit. The Decipher GRID program is rapidly expanding as major cancer centers partner with GenomeDx to access the database to advance their understanding of urologic cancers through the analysis of large amounts of genomic data.
