HealthcareSOPHiA GENETICS Launches New Residual Acute Myeloid (RAM) Application

SOPHiA GENETICS (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native healthcare technology company and a global leader in data-driven medicine, today announced its new Residual Acute Myeloid (RAM) Application. The new offering expands the company’s comprehensive oncology portfolio to support measurable residual disease (MRD) capabilities and will be available to customers worldwide this summer.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) represents about one percent of all cancers worldwide, yet is one of the most common forms of leukemia in adults1. Over 50 percent of AML patients relapse within 3 years after achieving complete remission2, therefore post-treatment monitoring is imperative for AML patients, particularly within the first two years, to help quickly detect any signs of relapse3. MRD solutions can help inform post-remission therapy and identify early relapse, and serve as a primary endpoint in clinical trials, helping researchers detect even the smallest trace of cancer and support better patient outcomes.

“AML unfortunately still remains an area of high unmet medical need today, with associated suboptimal patient outcomes. MRD measurement and monitoring has a critical role to play, for example by enabling research into the most optimal sequencing of therapies,” said Philippe Menu, M.D., PhD., Chief Medical Officer and Chief Product Officer, SOPHiA GENETICS. “We are proud to contribute to the fight against AML through our SOPHiA DDM™ RAM Solution. In particular we feel that the capability to seamlessly track longitudinally the evolution of individual mutations over time through a dedicated add-on module of our SOPHiA DDM™ Platform has the potential to be a game-changer for clinical researchers.”

Next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based MRD testing is among the most advanced in cancer screening and monitoring, and can be found only with highly sensitive methods. The SOPHiA DDM™ RAM Solution provides users with the confidence that MRD will detect even one cancer cell among 10,000 cells. This application will allow users to stay ahead of disease response with the analytical capabilities of the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform, enabling sensitive variant detection down to 0.01% VAF and covering guideline-recommended genes to deliver robust insights for residual acute myeloid.

Customers using the SOPHiA DDM™ RAM Solution will have access to longitudinal variant monitoring, allowing them to visualize the mutational landscape for each patient and its evolution over time. The solution also provides users with the most up-to-date databases and customizable reporting features to generate graphical representations and comprehensive MRD reports.

Additionally, the SOPHiA DDM™ RAM Solution will continually hone its machine learning algorithms to provide the most accurate MRD results in just four days.

Representatives from SOPHiA GENETICS are available at AMP (Association for Molecular Pathology) Europe June 24-27 to discuss AML monitoring with this new application.
