San Diego, CA, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mindera Health today announced that the General Services Administration (GSA) has granted a 5 year contract award to Mindera Health enabling access to their proprietary technology, Mind.Px. The Mind.Px test is the first and only test that provides a personalized approach selecting the class of biologic therapy a patient with plaque psoriasis is most likely to respond to. The decision is effective today and enables access to Mind.Px for those eligible for treatment at government-affiliated facilities including the over 9.6 million veterans, active duty, retirees and their families that are served by the Veteran’s Administration Health System and Department of Defense Medical Treatment Facilities, and others.
“Mind.Px addresses an unmet need in the effective management of plaque psoriasis patients by informing the selection of the most efficacious class of biologic therapy for a particular patient.” said Dr. Jeffrey Travers, Professor and Chair of Pharmacology and Toxicology and Professor of Dermatology at the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University and VA investigator at the Dayton VA Medical Center with no formal ties to Mindera Health. “This agreement will not only serve the patients that seek care in the VA and DOD Facilities, but will also afford the Dermatology Residents-in-training the opportunity to learn to manage psoriasis patients while leveraging this advance in personalized medicine.”
“We applaud the GSA/VA’s commitment to enabling access to new and innovative technologies like Mind.Px and are honored to participate in improving the care for psoriasis, while at the same time eliminating waste and improving cost-outcomes, within the largest integrated health network in the world,” said Ron Rocca CEO of Mindera Health.
Mind.Px is the flagship test of Mindera Health, designed to prospectively predict a patient’s response to expensive biologic drug classes prior to therapeutic selection and treatment. Using a scalable, minimally invasive dermal biomarker patch that captures over 7,000 biomarkers per sample along with data analytics, Mind.Px materially improves patient outcomes and significantly reduces healthcare system costs of expensive biologic treatments.
