What is Stratify Prostate?

Stratify Prostate™ is a national program that provides no-cost tumor sequencing for 10,000 men with metastatic prostate cancer to see if they may qualify for precision medicine clinical trials now or in the future. 

To be considered for participation please complete the Patient Survey.


Why Should I Get My Tumor Sequenced?

 
 
A new class of drugs in clinical trials, targeting BRCA and ATM-mutations, has demonstrated promising results in metastatic prostate cancer

To determine your tumor mutation status, and if you may be eligible for one of these clinical trials, you need to have your tumor tissue sequenced

How Does it Work?

 

> How do I participate? 

Tumor sequencing is provided to eligible patients at no-cost through enrollment in an observational study sponsored
by Strata Oncology called the Strata Trial.

  1. Your doctor orders a StrataNGS tumor sequencing test
  2. Your leftover tumor material is shipped to Strata Oncology for testing
  3. Strata issues your doctor a StrataNGS tumor sequencing report
  4. You and your doctor discuss the results and consider potential clinical trial opportunities
  5. Strata Oncology may contact your doctor to track how the tumor sequencing results were used 

> Why should I participate? 

We may find gene changes in your tumor that are important to your cancer treatment. Your testing results may indicate
that you potentially match to a relevant drug trial, thereby increasing your opportunity to try experimental drug options. 

You will also be part of cancer research, which might lead to better treatments for you and others with prostate cancer.  

> Do I need to have any new medical procedures to participate? 

No. Your doctor will send a leftover sample of your tumor that they already have.

> How much does it cost to participate?

There is no cost to you to participate in Stratify Prostate. StrataNGS testing is offered at no-cost to patients and hospitals through the Strata Trial (NCT03061305) a nationwide, observational, tumor-sequencing-based master screening protocol with the goal of matching patients to genomically-guided therapeutic protocols and/or approved therapies. There are no expenses issued and no charges for reimbursement to your insurance company.

> How do I find out if I am eligible to participate? 

To find out if you may be eligible to participate in Stratify Prostate, please complete the Patient Survey above. If you are eligible to participate, we will contact your doctor. Only your doctor can order a StrataNGS tumor sequencing test. 

> Can I order a test directly? 

No. A test must be ordered by your physician.

> How do I find out the results of my test? 

Your doctor will be send a copy of your report to review. Your doctor will review the finding with you.  

> How long does it take to get my results? 

Testing takes 10 days once we receive the sample from your doctor.
