Rna Diagnostics Inc. is at the forefront of the personalized medicine revolution. Rna Diagnostics’ first product, RNA Disruption Assay (RDA) helps oncologists rapidly determine whether chemotherapy is destroying the patient’s tumour. RDA addresses one of the highest priority problems in oncology; effective cancer chemotherapy management. Half of breast cancer patients receive chemotherapy as standard of care. However, chemotherapy provides effective long term survival benefit in only one of four patients, whereas all patients experience serious adverse effects. Ineffective chemotherapy is harmful to patients and costly to health systems. RDA is the first molecular diagnostic test that guides cancer chemotherapy optimization in real time. RDA is the only diagnostic test that predicts during treatment how patients will respond to chemotherapy. Responding patients can continue chemotherapy with confidence while non-responders can be switched to alternate therapies quickly, sparing them adverse effects. The RDA value proposition is compelling: optimized chemotherapy, fewer adverse effects for patients; better therapeutic guidance for oncologists, better patient flow for cancer clinics and lower healthcare costs. RDA addresses the most serious problem in cancer chemotherapy management with a unique effective solution. Rna Diagnostics will bring the RDA diagnostic platform to this $500M market within 30 months.
