Biocept and Clarient Announce Collaboration on First Test for Circulating Tumor Cells and HER2 Status in Breast Cancer Patients
Date:8/24/2011

d potentially other biomarkers, in the future.  OncoCEE-BR™ is the only commercially available CTC test that combines enumeration and cytogenetic characterization.

Ron Andrews, CEO of Clarient, said, "Establishing the ability to perform molecular characterization of peripheral cancer cells from a blood sample takes us one step closer to making cancer a chronic disease.  Biocept's OncoCEE™ platform supports our mission of personalized medicine and care for cancer patients."

Biocept's OncoCEE-BR™ test is expected to have application in several clinical settings, including:

  • At the time of recurrence, and especially in cases where a biopsy may be difficult to obtain, to determine if the patient's HER2 status has changed from the original diagnosis or surgery.
  • Confirmation of HER2 status at the time of original diagnosis or surgery, where tumor tissue analysis was negative for HER2 amplification.  Biocept has demonstrated detection of HER2-amplified CTCs in patients with HER2 negative primary tumors, a finding reported by other groups in the scientific literature.  This suggests that the pathologist may have examined a part of the tumor that was not HER2 amplified for a variety of reasons including tumor heterogeneity, and that treatment with HER2-targeted agents may be justified.  This could be a life-changing event for a breast cancer patient.
