The Clinical Benefits of the DiviTum® TKa Test

The DiviTum® TKa test can help oncologists make confident treatment decisions

  • Allows health care providers to easily track a patient’s response early on—and at any time point as clinically indicated—throughout treatment.
  • Complements traditional imaging—particularly if CT scans are difficult to interpret.

Validated to be prognostic for disease progression and overall survival1-2,*

  • Lower DiviTum TKa levels are associated with lower likelihood of disease progression*

Helps health care providers determine...

  • Which patients are—or are not—responding optimally to CDK4/6 inhibitor therapy and may benefit from continuing therapy3,4

*In the randomized, phase III, SWOG S0226 clinical trial, DiviTum TKa demonstrated a negative predictive value (NPV) of 97% and 94% within 30 and 60 days post testing, respectively. This clinical validation study assessed data from 1546 banked blood samples from 454 women with HR+ mBC who were treated with first-line endocrine therapy (anastrozole alone or anastrozole plus fulvestrant).
