ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION

Natera uses revolutionary technology to enhance the patient and physician's ability to assess otherwise undetected rejection events that might lead to loss of the transplanted organ.

 

In the U.S., the most commonly transplanted organs include kidneys, livers and hearts. Chronic Kidney Disease, or CKD, affects roughly 14% of Americans. It progresses through five stages, the final one being kidney failure. More than 660,000 Americans are experiencing kidney failure; of these people, the majority are on dialysis and another 190,000 live with a functioning organ transplant.

Every year, about 20,000 people receive kidney transplants. However, 50% of these procedures prove unsuccessful within ten years, and 20-30% fail within the first five. The most common reason these operations flounder is because the signs of organ rejection aren’t caught early enough to be treated effectively. When a body part is rejected, the patient may need another transplant and must begin the waitlist process again.

If organ rejection can be caught earlier, it can be treated immediately, increasing the odds that the patient can continue to use the donated kidney.

Prospera is optimized to be the most precise cfDNA tool for early, clinically meaningful rejection assessment.

Our Transplant Test

Prospera provides organ transplant services by using proprietary cfDNA technology to monitor signs of active rejection. The evaluation is conducted via a blood test, which is less invasive than a biopsy.

Currently, the baseline screening standard is a serum creatine test. However, Prospera is a more accurate assessment, since a serum creatine test cannot reveal a kidney transplant injury. The research on Prospera also indicates higher performance compared to other first generation cfDNA and serum creatine tests. This means that Prospera produces more precise, reliable information to help detect rejection earlier.
