Verici Dx plc (AIM: VRCI), a developer of advanced clinical diagnostics for organ transplant, announces that it will present a poster on the successful international clinical validation study for Clarava™, the Company’s pre-transplant blood-based prognostic test for the risk of early acute kidney transplant rejection, at the American Society of Nephrology’s annual conference, ASN Kidney Week, being held from 2-5 November 2023 in Philadelphia, PA.
The poster, titled “Multi-Center International Study to Validate a Pre-Transplant Blood-Based Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Signature Predicting Risk of Acute Rejection After Kidney Transplant”, will be presented from 10am-12pm on 2 November, in the Exhibit Hall at location TH-PO115.
The poster will describe the design and positive results of Clarava's™ successful validation study, as previously announced, and is expected to help establish the product within the international nephrology community ahead of commercial launch.
Clarava™ is the only pre-transplant test of its kind currently available that can risk stratify patients based on their likely immune response to a transplanted organ. This allows clinicians to identify patients most likely to require increased monitoring, including increasing or decreasing adjustments in the type, dose, and duration of immunosuppressive agents. Existing approaches to assess rejection risk are standardised and typically based on the recipient's race, age, previous transplant history and whether they have antibodies against common donor antigens. As previously reported, the Clarava™ personalised risk assessment is especially important for the expanding Deceased Donor transplant population.
Sara Barrington, CEO of Verici Dx, said: “ASN Kidney Week is an important platform for Verici Dx to raise awareness of its products including Clarava™, being the largest international gathering attended by kidney health professionals and featuring the latest advances in treatment, research and cutting edge technology in the field of nephrology.”
