Ovarian Cancer

News and reporting on ovarian cancer.

The lab, a pioneer in cancer genomics, is looking to proteomics and protein markers to improve the performance of a DNA-based test for early cancer detection.

The researchers developed a qPCR test that analyzes microRNAs associated with ovarian cancer and plan to run a retrospective trial of the assay on biobanked samples.

Total revenues were $699,000 up from $623,000 the year before with product revenue up 13 percent as OVA1 sales volume dropped but revenue per test performed rose.

Researchers at NJIT have initially tested their biochip for the detection of early-stage ovarian cancer, but they said it could have use for other cancers and diseases.

About £3.7 million ($4.9 million) of proceeds from the placement would go toward the acquisition, while remaining funds will support assay development validation, and working capital.

The companies will validate and commercialize the assay as a companion diagnostic to identify best responders to Morphotek's investigational ovarian cancer treatment.

The agreement is to support the company’s analytical and preanalytical research and assist in its trials aimed at a number of cancers.  

The group that advises primary care clinicians found evidence that false-positive screening results could lead to surgical interventions in asymptomatic patients.

NGeneBio is moving ahead with plans to have the test cleared for diagnostic use in Korea, while envisioning a 2019 submission to the US FDA.

The Korean molecular diagnostics startup is planning to launch the new offering in Europe, as well as China and other Southeast Asian countries.
