CardioDx recently announced the publication of the COMPASS (Coronary Obstruction Detection by Molecular Personalized Gene Expression) study in Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics, a journal of the American Heart Association. Results of the prospective, multi-center U.S. study showed that Corus CAD outperformed traditional stress testing with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), demonstrating high accuracy with both a higher sensitivity (89 percent vs. 27 percent) and higher negative predictive value (96 percent vs. 88 percent) than MPI for assessing the presence of obstructive CAD. 

With a simple blood draw, Corus CAD can safely, accurately and conveniently help primary care clinicians and cardiologists assess whether or not a stable non-diabetic patient's symptoms are due to obstructive CAD, enabling many patients to avoid unnecessary noninvasive and invasive cardiac procedures and exposure to imaging-related radiation risks or imaging agent intolerance. Corus CAD is the only sex-specific test for obstructive CAD, accounting for critical biological differences between men and women. Corus CAD has been used commercially by clinicians in more than 35,000 patients and is a covered benefit for more than 40 million Medicare enrollees in the U.S.

Corus CAD has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal's Technology Innovation Awards, honored as a Gold Edison Award recipient, and named one of TIME's Top Ten Medical Breakthroughs. CardioDx was recently honored as one of FierceMedicalDevices' "Fierce 15" most promising privately-held medical device and diagnostic companies.
