Oncocyte Corporation Hosting Business Update Call

Tuesday, December 14th @ 2:30pmET

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oncocyte Corporation (Nasdaq: OCX), a precision diagnostics and monitoring company with the mission to improve patient outcomes by providing clear insights that inform critical decisions in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of cancer, today announced that it will host a business update call, with a focus on the DetermaIO


immunotherapy response prediction test and TheraSure™ Transplant Monitor test as well as review key 2022 milestones for major products, on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at 2:30pm Eastern Time.

The call will feature presentations from Oncocyte’s management team who will provide an overall pipeline update and an overview of the potential of DetermaIO to predict the response to immuno-oncology therapies. Additionally, management will present plans for entering the transplant market with Oncocyte’s TheraSure™ Transplant Monitor test, which Oncocyte expects to market as DetermaCNI


in the United States. TheraSure is a blood-based solid organ transplantation monitoring test that quantifies the amount of graft derived cell-free DNA in organ recipients to detect early rejection of organ transplants and better assess the transplant health. TheraSure is designed to be used in lieu of a tissue biopsy in kidney, liver and heart transplant patients, minimizing the need for these invasive and costly procedures.

About DetermaIO™:

DetermaIO™ is a 27-target multivariate gene expression test performed on biopsy specimens that measures the presence of subtypes of infiltrating inflammatory cells, and the presence or absence of a differentiated stromal microenvironment. DetermaIO’s proprietary algorithm combines mRNA gene expression data and interprets the physiology of both the tumor and its surrounding micro-environment in order to predict the response to immuno-oncology therapies. DetermaIO has shown potential utility across multiple tumor types including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), breast, bladder and renal cancers, with immunotherapy response prediction that outperforms currently available tests including PD-L1 IHC and tumor mutational burden (TMB), suggesting a potential pan-cancer utility.

TheraSure™ Transplant Monitor

The TheraSure Transplant Monitor is a digital PCR (dPCR) test has shown in numerous European clinical studies that the use of donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) provides actionable information to detect rejection reactions early in organ transplant recipients. The TheraSure Transplant Monitor test uses only a simple blood draw, making the test easy to administer and potentially much more economical to perform than current tests that require a tissue biopsy. Data presented to date demonstrated that donor derived-DNA monitoring using digital PCR can facilitate personalized immunosuppression treatment, and potentially decrease premature graft loss by detecting injury before clinical manifestation. This allows treatment of acute rejection and other causes of graft injury, potentially improving organ transplant outcomes in patients significantly. The test was acquired as part of Oncocyte’s acquisition of Chronix Biomedical, Inc., which was completed in April 2021.
