BD and Fujirebio Diagnostics Sign Worldwide Agreement to Develop Biomarker Assays to Improve Cancer Detection and Management
Date:5/4/2009

Alliance Aims to First Develop Powerful Tools for Detecting Ovarian Cancer Earlier

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. and MALVERN, Pa., May 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX) and Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc., announced today the signing of a worldwide development and supply agreement for oncology diagnostic assays.

Under the agreement, the two companies will develop diagnostic products that incorporate Fujirebio Diagnostics' cancer biomarkers for use on BD's multiplex testing platform. The initial products will be directed to the ovarian cancer biomarker, HE4, which is FDA-cleared for monitoring the progression or recurrence of epithelial ovarian cancer. Fujirebio Diagnostics also grants BD, through its BD Diagnostics - TriPath platform, access to its other cancer biomarkers for inclusion in future multiplex diagnostic products.

"BD is investing in the development of tools and technologies essential for biomarker-guided cancer care.
