Advanced Cell Diagnostics Initiates Agreement to Study Biomarkers for Cancer Immunotherapy
Date:3/4/2013

HAYWARD, Calif., March 4th, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Cell Diagnostics, Inc. (ACD) announced today that they have entered into an agreement with The Johns Hopkins University on behalf of its Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins to use ACD's proprietary RNAscope® technology platform to validate novel biomarkers and drug targets for cancer immunotherapy.

Cancer immunotherapy, which aims to mobilize a patient's immune system to fight cancer, has been gaining momentum recently with the FDA approval of anti-CTLA-4 therapy for melanoma and with the recent impressive and durable remissions produced by targeting PD1 in multiple solid tumors in early-phase clinical trials led by Johns Hopkins investigators. With many additional immune modulatory molecules identified for targeting that play major roles in specific subsets of cancer, it will be critical to develop standardized biomarkers to guide the application of the most effective immune therapies on a patient by patient basis.

Targeting the immune checkpoints that are often suppressed in many cancers has demonstrated tremendous potential.  However, to identify biomarkers useful for guiding therapy, conventional approaches to biomarker analysis have proven inadequate, leading to conflicting results.

"The complex interplay between cancer cells and the immune system in the tumor microenvironment matches perfectly with RNAscope's capability of single molecule sensitivity and single cell resolution, which can help pinpoint which cell is talking to which other cell," said Dr. Yuling Luo , Founder, President and CEO of ACD.  Dr. Luo added, "That knowledge will be essential for selecting optimal targets for drug development and predicting which patient will benefit from it. We feel extremely fortunate to be able to provide such a tool to the pioneers in this emerging and exciting field."
