The current PSA test misses around 15% of prostate cancers and is frequently positive when no cancer is present. In a preliminary test of two of Caldera’s tests, the accuracy was 100% with no incorrect false negatives or positives. Caldera’s suite includes tests that are expected to predict how aggressive cancers are and how successful therapy is.

Easylodge Infrastructure Services – Easylodge was founded in 2006 to provide software and infrastructure services to the non-mortgage finance industry, and is now Australia’s largest non-mortgage finance trading network with over 2700 brokers and dealers using The Easylodge Community™.
