personalized medicine

NewStem is developing a technology that uses human haploid embryonic stem cells to predict cancer drug resistance.

As Dana-Farber migrates its dozens of medical and radiation oncology protocols to the Philips platform, its focus is on digital pathology, genomics, and informatics.

The company will work with medical faculties of the universities of Greifswald and Rostock to develop Dx tools for personalized, immune-based treatments.

The partners will develop next-generation sequencing-based tests for precision cancer treatment for the Asian market.

Although people have greater access to personalized drugs and tests than ever before, a survey by GenomeWeb and the PMC shows public awareness isn't improving.  

GenomeDx will test its Decipher GRID database of cancer genomic profiles with samples from Janssen-run prostate cancer clinical trials.

The companies are aiming to develop and establish clinical operation for the assays in Japan, where Hitachi said there is growing demand for such tests.

The companies will join their respective technologies into a precision oncology testing and analysis offering.

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 funding will support various projects and research centers that are advancing precision medicine and genomic technology development.
