Inform Clinical Challenges in Colorectal Cancer
Identify High Risk Patients
Evaluate which patients are likely to relapse
97% of patients
who are ctDNA+ at 4 weeks post-op will relapse without further treatment1
Detect Recurrence Early
Identify recurrence earlier
median lead time over radiographic recurrence1
Go Beyond Yes or No
Track treatment response via ctDNA dynamics
68.48% of ACT-treated patients
cumulatively cleared their ctDNA by week 24 and had significantly better outcomes compared to patients who remained ctDNA positive (adjusted HR 8.50 and 11 respectively, p values < 0.0001).2
Predict Adjuvant Treatment Benefit
Recent data from the largest MRD-guided trial to date indicates the Signatera™ Molecular Residual Disease Test (MRD) can help predict which patients may benefit from adjuvant treatment:
At 4 weeks post surgery:
- Post-surgical MRD status was predictive of chemotherapy benefit. Patients who were MRD-positive four weeks after surgery (18%) derived significant benefit from ACT (adjusted HR 6.59, p-value <0.001). MRD-negative patients (82%) did not see a significant benefit from ACT (p-value <0.167).3
- Post-surgical MRD status was the most significant prognostic risk factor for recurrence, in a multivariate analysis that accounted for all clinicopathological risk factors currently used for prognostication (HR 10.82, p-value <0.001).3
- Pre-surgical detection rate of 95.9% in patients with pathologic stage II-III disease and 93.1% in patients with stage II-IV disease.3
- Signatera™ dynamics are indicative of treatment response. Among the MRD-positive patients who were treated with ACT, those with ctDNA clearance had superior DFS compared to those without ctDNA clearance (adjusted HR 11, p-value <0.0001).
Powering Personalized Decisions in Early and Late Stage CRC
Discover the Colorectal Cancer Data
- Signatera™ MRD testing in colorectal cancer is validated across treatment settings.
Neoadjuvant Response Monitoring
- Monitor neoadjuvant response with serial Signatera™ testing.
- Identify low risk patients who are ctDNA-negative to potentially support a nonsurgical “watch and wait” approach.
Post-Surgical MRD Assessment
Treatment Response Monitoring
Identify Risk in Stage II-III CRC
Signatera™ was the only significant predictor of long-term outcomes in stage II-III colorectal cancer.1,7-9
In a multivariate statistical analysis, MRD status as evaluated by Signatera™ testing had significant predictive value for long-term outcomes after adjusting for all known clinicopathological risk factors, including disease stage and lymph node status.10
Helping Patients Live With Confidence
Watch Beth’s story to learn how she and her medical oncologist used Signatera™ testing to inform important treatment decisions.
“The standard tools that we use for monitoring…are good to a certain extent, but there has to be a sufficient amount of tumor activity for them to pick up [the cancer]. We needed something more precise and that’s when I decided to utilize Signatera™”
– Dr. Anup Kasi, Beth’s oncologist at the University of Kansas
Beth’s experience with Signatera™ was determined through shared decision-making with her treating physician and family. No treatment recommendations are made or should be implied.
