Transplant Genomics aims to improve transplant outcomes through molecular diagnostic tests that detect early signs of graft injury, differentiate among actionable causes, and enable optimization of therapy.
Post-Transplant Complications Pose Risks for Allograft Function
In the United States alone, nearly 40,000 organ transplants are performed annually, with kidney, liver, heart, and lung being the most common.
Living donor and deceased donor organ transplants have substantially improved the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of patients.
However, despite continuous advancements in surgical and medical practices, incidences of acute rejection and chronic damage of transplanted organs remain a significant problem to post-transplant patient health. Acute rejection, including subclinical acute rejection (SubAR), can negatively impact patient quality of life and lead to chronic rejection — minimizing allograft survival and requiring retransplantation or other interventions.
Non-invasive Genomic Monitoring Can Improve Transplant Outcomes
Since 2014, Transplant Genomics, Inc. has been committed to improving organ transplant outcomes through non-invasive molecular diagnostics that detect early signs of allograft injury, differentiate among actionable causes, and optimize therapy.
The standard protocols for post-transplant monitoring rely on late-trailing indicators of graft function or painful, expensive, and invasive surveillance biopsies. These tests may not indicate imminent rejection until the allograft is significantly damaged, leaving clinicians and patients fewer options to improve organ health before more severe complications occur.
Transplant Genomics’ extensive development pipeline includes non-invasive diagnostic and predictive tests for kidney and liver graft dysfunction, the use of multiple sample types (e.g. blood and urine) and technology platforms (e.g. NGS, qPCR, and microarrays), companion diagnostics for immunosuppressants, and immune status tests.
The Trusted Advisor in Personalized Diagnostics for Transplant Patients Worldwide
Transplant Genomics is a team of passionate and committed scientists, clinicians, laboratory technicians, and business professionals who strive to improve the quality of life for transplant recipients. We are committed to developing innovative tests and technologies that provide an accurate and actionable notice of graft injury, giving transplant care teams the best opportunity to address complications early and preserve organ health and function.
We share a set of core values that infuse everything we do:
- We put patients first.
- There is a human life behind every specimen we test in the lab. Transplant recipients are our family, friends, and neighbors. We calibrate everything we do by asking, “Will this help get accurate and timely test results into the hands of a clinician and their patient so that they can make the best decisions about their patient’s health?”
- We are grounded by science.
- We partner with leading research institutions, transplant centers, and higher-education colleges and universities to ensure our work is backed by scientific validity and clinical utility.
- We hire talent and nurture our team.
- We actively seek out and employ people with demonstrated scientific, operational, and business success who are passionate about improving the quality of life for transplant patients. As a team, we communicate and collaborate, challenge each other, and support each other in fulfilling our mission.
- We celebrate our wins.
- Helping patients experience better transplant outcomes is a success worth celebrating! We recognize, internally and externally, the strategies, activities, and results that improve patient care.
- We are committed to our customers’ success.
- We partner with the hospitals and clinics that use our tests, providing the education, tools, and support they need to be successful. We never lose sight of the connection between the tests we offer and the patients who need them.
