The miR Scientific Sentinel™ Test Provides One Of Four Results

No Cancer

Our technology identifies molecular evidence of malignancies from the entire prostate gland, even in early onset of the disease, so if the test shows that cancer is not present, patients and physicians can confidently conclude that no cancer is present at the time of diagnosis.  No means No.

Yes Cancer/Intermediate Risk

Depending on the risk tolerance of patients and physicians, they may decide on monitoring the disease for progression non-invasively under an active surveillance protocol or elect to undergo a definitive treatment.

Yes Cancer/Low Risk

An overwhelming majority of prostate cancer patients have an indolent, or clinically insignificant localized cancer that does not require a definitive treatment.  For patients with low risk classifications, a physician may recommend a follow up under an active surveillance protocol, which for patients simply entails providing more urine samples periodically to ensure the disease has not progressed.

Yes Cancer/High Risk

Patients whose molecular signature indicates the presence of high grade disease typically would undergo interventional definitive treatment, the specifics of which will be determined by the specialist care provider. Our technology identifies molecular evidence of the malignancies from the entire prostate gland, even in early onset of the disease.  Yes means Yes and No means NO.

Uniquely miR

Accurate

Accelerate the right diagnosis and treatment for individual cancer management with accurate diagnosis, classification, and monitoring.

Non-Invasive

Help patients avoid the invasive, inaccurate, and painful diagnostic procedures that are the current standard of care. miR delivers results with zero contact.

Standalone

Broaden access to life-saving cancer screening with a completely standalone urine test that diagnoses and classifies prostate cancer with no additional testing requirements.

Validated

The miR Disease Management Platform™ is peer-reviewed and validated for the screening and classification of prostate cancer.

Efficient

Rapid turnaround of reliable information guides treatment decisions and enables true cost-effectiveness in prostate cancer screening and management.

Scalable

Unlike biopsies, MRIs, and other current options, the miR platform is high-throughput, easily administered, and cost-effective for large volumes of patients.

Why It Matters

Prostate cancer is prevalent and deadly.

It represents the highest number of new cancer cases diagnosed annually and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men. Early detection and the ability to identify high grade disease early are key to effective disease management.  

Unlike other cancers, most prostate cancers are indolent and are unlikely to ever need treatment, and only a relatively small number of prostate cancer patients have aggressive disease that requires intervention.

The challenge lies in effectively differentiating between the two, quickly, but until now, no effective, accurate and non-invasive tests have been developed for the early detection and grade classification of prostate cancer.

Today’s Standard Of Care Is Ineffective

Biopsy Reliant

The current standard of care relies on PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) and Digital Rectal Exams (DRE) to trigger core needle biopsies for the detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Unnecessary Pain

It is inaccurate, invasive and often results in overtreatment.  70% of diagnostic core needle biopsies are unnecessary and consequently incur cost and morbidities.

Preserving Avoidance

The ineffectiveness of today’s standard of care leads many men to completely avoid the screening process. It is estimated that over  60% of age-eligible men remain unscreened.

Current Standards Are Failing Patients, Physicians, Health Systems, And Payors.
