First Oral Presentation of OKRA Study Data Highlights CareDx Leadership in Multimodality KidneyCare

Symposium Highlights Power of CareDx Artificial Intelligence Solutions

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA) – The Transplant Company™ focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers – today announced a leading presence at the 2022 American Transplant Congress (ATC) with over 50 oral and scientific poster presentations. CareDx will also be sponsoring a symposium, three product theatres, and an Innovation Day session covering the latest innovations in transplantation.1 The ATC meeting takes place June 4-8 in Boston, Massachusetts.

“At CareDx our organizational priority is to the transplant patient and community. This dedicated, 100 percent commitment to transplantation is reflected in the record-breaking number of abstracts presented at ATC this year. I am particularly proud of our first oral presentation of OKRA study results, with data from over 50 centers, highlighting the value of our multimodality KidneyCare solution, including AlloSure, AlloMap, and AI-based tools,” said Reg Seeto, CEO and President of CareDx.

CareDx Product Theatres – Theatre A, Exhibit Hall C:

  • The Predictive Power of AlloSure® Kidney and AiKidney™,

    Sunday, June 5, 9:30–10:00 am ET

  • Shifting the Paradigm from Observation to Intervention: The Future of HeartCare,

    Monday, June 6, 3:00-3:30pm ET

  • CareDx & KDIGO: Outcomes from the Challenging Allograft Consensus Conference,

    Tuesday, June 7, 9:30-10:00am ET

CareDx Lunch Symposium:

  • A Window to a New World: Multi-Modality Molecular Characterization & Prediction of Allograft Outcomes, Tuesday, June 7, 12:45 – 1:45pm ET

“I am excited to see the latest findings from the OKRA study showing the additive value of multimodal assessments using CareDx’s AlloSure, AlloMap, and AI-enabled algorithms to gain more comprehensive information about a patient’s allograft health and the likelihood of rejection. Having this information can help inform clinical management decisions for earlier interventions or modulating immunosuppression,” said Amishi Desai, DO, Associate Professor, Medical Director of Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation and Division Chief of Transplant Nephrology, Loyola University.
