GenesisCare and PreludeDx(TM) Present Compelling First Interim Analysis of Australia’s DCISionRT Study During Breast Cancer Awareness Month 45% Change in Treatment Recommendations While Using DCISionRT
CALIFORNIA CITY, CA., October 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GenesisCare, a leading global provider of comprehensive cancer care, and Prelude Corporation (PreludeDx(TM)), a leader in molecular diagnostics and precision medicine, today announced results provisional from the AUSPREDICT register. Data presented at the Australasian International Breast Congress demonstrates a significant change (45%) in radiotherapy treatment recommendations1 when using the DCISionRT test, thereby optimizing management to prevent overtreatment and undertreatment of Australian women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
DCIS is a pre-invasive breast disease that can lead to invasive breast cancer if left untreated.(2) After breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for DCIS, radiation therapy is often used to minimize the risk of recurrence. DCISionRT(R) is a new molecular test that assesses the risk of recurrence over 10 years after BCS and whether there would be a benefit to treating with radiotherapy. GenesisCare and PreludeDx have formed a strategic partnership in 2021 to bring DCISionRT to Australia for the first time and establish the AUS-PREDICT registry to collect real-world data to further the development of precision medicine and decision tools globally.
The presentation, titled Interim Analysis of the PREDICT Registry Australia: Changes in Treatment Recommendation for a Biological Signature Predictive of Radiation Therapy (RT) Benefit in Patients with DCIS, studied 232 patients from Australia who had received the DCISionRT test after breast-conserving surgery. Radiation therapy recommendation decreased by 70% in patients with low-risk DCISionRT score and increased by 29% in patients with high-risk scores.(1)
Chief Breast Surgeon Specialist and Director of Breast Cancer Services for royal melbourne and female royal Hospital, Melbourne, Professor Bruce Mannsaid, “Historically, we have relied on clinical pathology, such as tumor grade and size, to determine treatment plans for patients with DCIS. These data demonstrate that the integration of DCISionRT into clinical decision-making has a substantial impact on RT recommendations and has the ability to prevent overtreatment and undertreatment of patients with DCIS.”
GenesisCare Principal Investigator and Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Yvonne Zissiadissaid the interim results “demonstrate the critical role of DCISionRT in the clinical treatment journey of patients with DCIS, ensuring women receive the right treatment at the right time.” Our study underscores that DCISionRT is a promising predictive tool, arming clinicians and patients with the information to make informed decisions about treatment options based on a patient’s individual biorisk profile.
“GenesisCare, in partnership with PreludeDx, is delighted to present interim results from our first Australian study,” continued Dr Zissiadis.
“AUS-PREDICT’s first interim analysis is highly consistent with the US-PREDICT3 registry which has completed enrollment of 2,500 patients,” said Troy Bremer, PhD, scientific director of PreludeDx. “In registry studies in both countries, DCISionRT was the most influential single factor in changing treatment recommendations regarding radiation therapy after breast-conserving surgery,” Dr. Bremer continued.
“We are excited to bring precision medicine to Australian women diagnosed with DCIS and to continue their enrollment in the AUS-PREDICT registry. We look forward to the continued expansion of our global data and clinical evidence network for DCISionRT,” said Dan ForcheCEO of PreludeDx.

About the AUS-PREDICT registry
AUS-PREDICT is a prospective registry study designed to assess the effect of the DCISionRT test on treatment decisions in patients with DCIS after breast-conserving therapy. The study will recruit 1,500 women across Australia on the registry, who accessed DCISionRT after surgery.
About DCISionRT for Breast DCIS
DCISionRT is the only risk assessment test for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) that predicts the benefit of radiation therapy. Patients with DCIS have cancer cells lining the milk ducts of the breast, but they have not spread to surrounding breast tissue. In the United States, more than 60,000 women are newly diagnosed with DCIS each year. DCISionRT, developed by PreludeDx on technology licensed from University of California San Francisco, and building on research that began with funding from the National Cancer Institute, helps doctors better understand the biology of DCIS. DCISionRT combines the latest innovations in molecular biology with risk-based assessment scores to assess a woman’s individual tumor biology as well as other disease risk factors and provide personalized recurrence risk. The test provides a Decision Score™ which identifies a woman’s risk as low or high. DCISionRT’s smart reports provide a woman’s risk of recurrence after breast-conserving surgery alone and with the addition of radiation therapy. In turn, this new information can help patients and their doctors make more informed treatment decisions.
Disclaimer: Since the test was only recently launched in Australiait is not currently on Medicare or listed on the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) in Australia. Instead, the patient’s tissue sample is sent overseas for California to a Prelude CAP/CLIA accredited laboratory for analysis. The test is frequently used in the UNITED STATES and many insurers finance the test there. Overall, the test is validated by Level 1b clinical evidence which is considered one of the highest levels of evidence.
