The firm's EpiSwitch test for blood-based diagnosis of prostate cancer will be evaluated as part of the ongoing PROSTAGRAM trial.

While the first task of the centers will be to digitize their workflows to improve efficiency, they also aim to eventually develop new AI-based analytical tools for diagnosing patients.

The system relies on the use of scannable safety code cards containing patient data, along with a web portal and automated analysis tools that deliver customized diagnostic reports.

According to project organizers, feasibility testing in the first phase of the project was successful and clinical trials are planned for later this year.

The Codex4SMEs project, which has a €3.1 million budget, involves seven countries to increase cooperation in Europe's northwest region to develop companion diagnostics.

The new European initiative promises to deliver multiple new tests and methods for improving the treatment of breast cancer and rectal cancer.

Backed by €19 million in EU funding, the initiative, called BigData@Heart, will create a research platform that could change the way cardiovascular diseases are diagnosed and treated.

The research aims to validate new predictive tests that would enable development of diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to fight sepsis.

The group this week published a set of initial guidelines for antibody validation meant as recommendations in advance of a larger meeting later this month.
