Prospera Heart

The science behind the certainty

 

A single, noninvasive dd-cfDNA blood test for heart transplant monitoring. Early insight into active rejection risk may change everything.

Prospera – the next generation

  • Developed by Natera, a leader in cell-free DNA (cfDNA) with a trusted legacy in fetal monitoring, oncology and organ health
  • Demonstrated in over 3 million tests1
  • Utilizes over 13,000 pan-ethnic SNPs and advanced bioinformatics2
  • Optimized to be the most precise cfDNA tool for early, clinically meaningful rejection assessment.3,4

Why Prospera?

The current surveillance landscape has limitations and the management of heart transplant recipients is complex and challenging

25% of heart transplant recipients experience acute rejection in their first year5

Survival rates of heart transplant recipients show little improvement over time6

Though endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) is the gold standard in surveillance for acute rejection, it has recognized challenges

“There is a need for a sensitive, noninvasive surveillance tool for early detection of transplant injury to reduce frequency of biopsy in heart transplantation.”3
