About Decipher RP:
Decipher Radical Prostatectomy (RP) is a tissue based prostate cancer marker (PCM) that helps the high-risk patient and their healthcare provider understand if they may need additional treatment following radical prostatectomy. The Decipher RP test was designed for individuals with high risk features following RP. This includes patients who have positive surgical margins, extraprostatic extension, seminal vesicle invasion, bladder neck invasion, or a PSA rise after RP.
The test looks at the activation of 22 RNA biomarkers (using specialized lab tests using your prostate cancer positive tissue) associated with metastatic progression. These markers review your prostate cancer tissue and evaluate your cancers cell cycle progression, immune system activity and response, androgen signaling pathways, metabolism, and angiogenesis potential (cancer cell blood vessel formation).
