CardioDx: Bringing Molecular Diagnostics Into the Cardiovascular Arena

Executive Summary

Buoyed by their success with Genomic Health, a trio of West Coast VCs have expanded their portfolios of molecular diagnostic companies, with many following similar themes. CardioDx has developed a test to distinguish between patients who should move on to cardiac imaging and those they are comfortable managing otherwise. Such a rule-out test is a challenging proposition. But if adopted, and more broadly, as molecular diagnostics move into new and broad markets like cardiology and metabolic disease, pharma could use this opportunity to its advantage in many settings, including co-marketing arrangements.
