CareDx Advances Global Transplant Patient Care at ESOT Congress 2023


CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA) – The Transplant Company™ focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers – today announced a leading presence at the 2023 European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) Congress taking place September 17-20, 2023, in Athens, Greece.

The latest scientific advances in global transplantation using CareDx’s AlloSeq cfDNA testing solutions are being showcased across eleven abstracts, including four posters, two moderated e-posters, one focus group, and five oral presentations. CareDx is hosting an educational symposium for medical professionals demonstrating the clinical utility of AlloSeq cfDNA. AlloSeq cfDNA is offered to European and other customers outside of the United States, to detect donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) for the surveillance of allograft rejection risk in solid organ transplant patients.

“We are proud to attend ESOT Congress 2023, a preeminent European transplant conference, and share the latest data demonstrating the use of AlloSeq cfDNA,” said Reg Seeto, CEO and President of CareDx. “Through our partners and work with transplant centers internationally, we have made excellent progress in improving access to AlloSeq cfDNA for the benefit of organ transplant patients globally.”

Abstract Title


  • The EVACADE study: dd-cfDNA for diagnosis of acute rejection in kidney transplantation
  • Donor-derived cell-free DNA identifies “troubled” kidney allografts
  • Assessment of dd-cfDNA in kidney transplantation as a marker of graft injury - a prospective study
  • Assessment of donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) in kidney transplant recipients with indication biopsy (selected for “Best of ESOT 2023”)
  • Impact of donor-derived cell-free DNA assessment in monitoring kidney transplant recipients: interim report of a prospective longitudinal study
  • Evolution of dd-cfDNA during the first week after surgery predicts medium to long term renal outcomes
  • Initial experience with local laboratory run assay to detect donor-derived cell-free DNA for non-invasive diagnosis of acute myocardial rejection


  • Local laboratory-run donor-derived cell-free DNA testing in stable heart transplantation: two-centre European feasibility study
  • Comparison of plasma donor-derived cell-free DNA with LASHA scoring system in lung transplantation: a single centre experience (selected for “ESOT award 2023”)


  • Clinical relevance of cell-free DNA quantification and qualification during the first month after lung transplantation


  • Multi-centric analytical performance validation of an IVD assay to quantify donor-derived cell-free DNA for solid organ transplant surveillance

“It is gratifying seeing the impact of dd-cfDNA on clinical practice and patient care. We’ve seen how the information from AlloSeq cfDNA testing not only helps clinicians in their decision-making, but also empowers transplant recipients, providing them control, understanding, and greater peace of mind on the status of their transplanted organ,” Dr. Thomas Schachtner, Transplant Specialist, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland.

CareDx will review the latest data on AlloSeq cfDNA during an ESOT Congress 2023 Industry Satellite Symposium titled, “Adopting dd-cfDNA for Solid Organ Surveillance: Raising the Standards of Transplant Care.” The symposium will be held live and streamed virtually on ESOT’s Congress platform on Sunday, September 17, 2023. Dr. Titte Srinivas, Chief Medical Officer at CareDx and Dr. Georg Böhmig, Associate Professor at the Medical University Vienna, Austria, will moderate the session. Speakers include:

  • Maarten Naesens, MD, PhD, Clinical Director, Professor of Nephrology and Renal Transplantation, University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium
  • Alexandre Loupy, MD, PhD, Professor of Nephrology and Epidemiology, Necker Hospital, PITOR (Paris Institute for Transplantation & Organ Regeneration), France
  • David Cucchiari, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Nephrology, Hospital Clínic Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
