Allelica announces the release of the Allelica Precision Server (APS) for CLIA-compliant, on-premises analysis and clinical reporting of polygenic risk score, pharmacogenomics and carrier screening. APS is now available for medical laboratories and healthcare providers.

img Allelica participates in BiotechX Europe 2023

The Allelica team met with leaders in the pharmaceutical industry and biotechnology at the annual BioTechX conference in Basel, Switzerland. PRS is increasingly gaining traction among pharma and biotech companies for its ability to stratify clinical trial populations and identify new drug targets.

img PRS cost-effectiveness results published in Frontiers

Results published by Allelica researchers in Frontiers in Public Health reveal that integrating PRS testing into workplace health programs cuts costs for employers and improves quality of life for employees. Authors found that Allelica's workplace program integrating PRS with the standard of care, cardioriskSCORE, significantly outperformed programs without PRS.

img Allelica delivers oral presentation, three poster presentations at ESHG 2023

The Allelica team showcased exciting PRS results at the European Society of Human Genetics Conference 2023. Posters included: Low-coverage genotyping-by-sequencing with accurate long HiFi reads and optimized imputation (presented in collaboration with PacBio), Recalibrating polygenic risk scores to country-specific incidence, and Analyses of polygenic risk scores that consider individual-level admixture proportions outperform single ancestry approaches.

img Clinical breast cancer PRS Results presented at ASCO 2023

Dr. Daniel Morganstern of Hartford Healthcare presented results integrating Allelica’s multi-ancestry PRSs into risk assessments at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting. Findings revealed the value PRS provides in clinical risk assessments for breast cancer.

img Allelica Research Published in the Journal of the American Heart Association

A health economics study [Integrating a Polygenic Risk Score for Coronary Artery Disease as a Risk‐Enhancing Factor in the Pooled Cohort Equation: A Cost‐Effectiveness Analysis Study] has been published in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The study, performed by Allelica, in collaboration with experts from Illumina and the University of Sydney, analyzed the cost-effectiveness of PRS in heart disease risk assessments and found that PRS is cost-saving in US health systems.
