Agena Bioscience and Diatech Pharmacogenetics Announce Plan to Launch Actionable, Targeted CE-IVD Marked Oncology Assays for Colon, Lung, and Melanoma Treatment http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/827/agena-bioscience-and-diatech-pharmacogenetics-announce-plan-to-launch-actionable-targeted-ce-ivd-marked-oncology-assays-for-colon-lung-and-melanoma-treatment Diatech Pharmacogenetics srl http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/827/agena-bioscience-and-diatech-pharmacogenetics-announce-plan-to-launch-actionable-targeted-ce-ivd-marked-oncology-assays-for-colon-lung-and-melanoma-treatment http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/827/agena-bioscience-and-diatech-pharmacogenetics-announce-plan-to-launch-actionable-targeted-ce-ivd-marked-oncology-assays-for-colon-lung-and-melanoma-treatment 27.10.2015 SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 27, 2015 — Agena Bioscience announced today the planned commercial launch of its CE-IVD marked MassARRAY® Dx PLUS assays for gene-specific mutation testing to aid in the selection of targeted therapy regimens. Agena Bioscience will introduce the first diagnostic kits in partnership with Diatech Pharmacogenetics. The MassARRAY Dx PLUS assays improve upon existing methods on the market, enabling highly multiplexed screening of actionable targets in a single assay, thereby dramatically reducing cost and turnaround time for testing laboratories.

MassARRAY Dx PLUS assays will provide parallel analysis of the most frequently observed and actionable mutations in colon, lung, or melanoma tumors. Labs can rapidly test for the most critical mutations in KRAS, NRAS, BRAF, EGFR, and ALK genes to drive better patient treatment outcomes.

Clinical practice guidelines, such as those set forth by the European Society of Medical Oncology, necessitate screening mutations in oncogenes such as EGFR and/or KRAS for targeted treatment. As personalized treatment has evolved with the discovery of new biomarkers, as well as the advent of novel cancer drugs, such as tyrosine kinase inhibitors, the number of actionable mutations has expanded. However, the lack of a cost-effective, practical method for screening in parallel has complicated the ease of introducing new mutations into clinical testing.

Diatech Pharmacogenetics obtained by the European Union a founding of Euro 2 million in Horizon 2020 http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/762/diatech-pharmacogenetics-obtained-by-the-european-union-a-founding-of-euro-2-million-in-horizon-2020 Diatech Pharmacogenetics srl http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/762/diatech-pharmacogenetics-obtained-by-the-european-union-a-founding-of-euro-2-million-in-horizon-2020 http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/762/diatech-pharmacogenetics-obtained-by-the-european-union-a-founding-of-euro-2-million-in-horizon-2020 27.03.2015

The Group Diatech, leader in Italy  of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics sectors , obtained by the European Union funding of approximately Euro 2 million in Horizon 2020 with the research project LEONID (Lung Cancer Genes Fusion: a new Diagnostic Device).
The main objective of the project is to develop an innovative diagnostic test that allows the analysis of some tumor markers decisive in the choice of treatment of lung cancer. Compared to traditional methods, this molecular test permits to get much more informations, speeding up diagnosis and significantly reducing costs. The use of this diagnostic test certificate by the European Union associated with a software for data analysis allow to obtain standardized results and avoid the personal interpretation of the information . In this way the reduction of the human in the analysis also will significantly reduce the error rate in the reporting, thereby favoring the choice of the most appropriate therapy for patients suffering from lung cancer.
LEONID is the result of the synergy between Diatech Pharmacogenetics , the absolute leader in Italy in pharmacogenetics and customization of care with a market share of 70%, BiMind and GeneticLab, companies owned by the Group.

Diatech Pharmacogenetics is pleased to announce the launch of the kit myriapod Lung status http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/712/diatech-pharmacogenetics-is-pleased-to-announce-the-launch-of-the-kit-myriapod-lung-status Diatech Pharmacogenetics srl http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/712/diatech-pharmacogenetics-is-pleased-to-announce-the-launch-of-the-kit-myriapod-lung-status http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/712/diatech-pharmacogenetics-is-pleased-to-announce-the-launch-of-the-kit-myriapod-lung-status 26.06.2014
The kit Myriapod® Lung status (SQ011, CE-IVD) is used to detect nucleotide variants in parallel 307, relative to the genes EGFR, KRAS, BRAF, PIK3CA, NRAS, ALK, ERBB2, DDR2, MAP2K1 and RET by MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry associated with the technology Single Base Extension.

The panel consists of 8 multiplex reactions, each of which needs only 5 ng of DNA extracted from fresh tissue, frozen or paraffin, or cells.

With the kit provided all reagents and consumables necessary for the execution of 120 tests, divided into 10 independent analytical sessions, each for 10 clinical samples and 2 controls the reaction, respectively positive (wild-type human genomic DNA for all variants investigated) and negative, which are also included in the product.

The system allows to genotype automatically and completely reproducible, samples with an accuracy ≥ 99.7% and a sensitivity that can drop to below 5% of mutated allele.

Physiomics enters the personalized medicine market. Anticipated new collaboration with Diatech Pharmacogenetics http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/708/physiomics-enters-the-personalized-medicine-market-anticipated-new-collaboration-with-diatech-pharmacogenetics Diatech Pharmacogenetics srl http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/708/physiomics-enters-the-personalized-medicine-market-anticipated-new-collaboration-with-diatech-pharmacogenetics http://diatechpharmacogenetics.com/en/708/physiomics-enters-the-personalized-medicine-market-anticipated-new-collaboration-with-diatech-pharmacogenetics 12.06.2014 Physiomics plc (AIM: PYC), the Oxford, UK based systems biology company, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Heads of Terms agreement with Diatech Pharmacogenetics srl (“Diatech”) to negotiate a Collaboration Agreement. Under the terms of the anticipated Collaboration Agreement Physiomics and Diatech will develop an innovative in-silico platform to personalize cancer patient treatment.
This anticipated new in-silico platform will combine pharmacological information related to cancer drugs with genomic and physiological information about the patient, to predict which treatments and regimens are likely to lead to an increase in survival. The platform will initially be used to support physicians to make the best choice of available treatment options for patients. Ultimately, the software could be further developed to choose the right patient groups for clinical trials of new drugs.
The parties anticipate signing a full collaboration agreement within 6 months and a further announcement will be made at that time if it is executed.
Diatech is the market leader for cancer Pharmacogenetics in Italy with a 80% market share into the CE IVD segment. They would provide the necessary clinical calibration via an existing network of cancer centres. If completed, the directors believe the collaboration would provide a direct route to market for Italy and potentially other Diatech clients in Europe, where the software developed could be sold in combination with Diatech’s kits.
