What is the EPI-CE Test?
The EPI-CE Test is a simple, non-DRE, urine-based, liquid biopsy test indicated for men 50 years of age and older with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) 2-10ng/mL, or PSA in the “gray zone”, considering an initial biopsy. The EPI-CE test returns a risk score that determines a patient’s risk of clinically significant prostate cancer (Gleason Score ≥7) on prostate biopsy. A score above the validated cut-point of 15.6 is associated with an increased likelihood of GS≥7 PCa on a biopsy and a score below the cut-point of 15.6 is associated with a decreased likelihood of GS≥7 PCa. This test can help reassure a patient to avoid a prostate biopsy or improve patient compliance with physician recommendation.
