Cadex Genomics® develops and markets liquid-based molecular assays used by physicians to improve care for their cancer patients. Our initial focus is a qPCR-based test, named Alibrex®, which provides real-time insight into therapy response for patients with stage IV solid tumors.

 


6.5M doses of Stage IV drugs will be administered in North America in 2021, 29.2M doses administered globally at a cost of +$40B. 

Cancer patients and families would avoid months of uncertainty, wasted time, unchecked tumor growth, avoidable toxic side effects and high costs.  

Alibrex is a blood-based diagnostic test that uses widely available and accepted lab methodology with a six-hour turnaround time. It delivers real-time cancer therapy monitoring results that identify ineffective therapy within 2-3 weeks after a patient starts a cycle of therapy, rather than 2-3 months. If therapy isn’t working, patients and care providers know sooner and can consider a different therapy.

Alibrex is objective, precise, reproducible with 100% specificity, is tumor and therapy type agnostic, cost effective, and fits seamlessly into existing patient/physician workflow.

Alibrex has the potential to improve the cancer patient’s quality of life and reduce the cost of care for patients and health insurance companies.

Alibrex scans the cancer patient’s blood rather than relying solely on radiological scans. It requires 2 blood draws: one prior to a cycle of treatment and another 12 to 21 days after a cycle of treatment. The blood draws are obtained during regular scheduled appointments with the patient’s physician. Alibrex analyzes the blood to determine if the patient’s primary tumor is growing, indicating that the patient’s therapy is not working.

Alibrex uses qPCR, patented methods and DNA targets to measure very small changes in cfDNA levels with great precision and accuracy. Cadex Genomics also has patented technology to filter out cfDNA that are unrelated to a patient’s cancer.

Alibrex has a turn-around time of hours rather than days, which is critical for this intended use. The cost to run the Alibrex test is low, enabling pricing that delivers cost savings in different geographies and a positive gross margin to Cadex Genomics.
