Center for Molecular Medicine Selected to Provide DNA Analysis for Children's Oncology Group Leukemia Study
Date:1/8/2008

>

"As the national infrastructure for pediatric cancer clinical and translational research, the COG is uniquely positioned to leverage its unparalleled, highly annotated bio-specimen resources to identify and validate specific gene polymorphisms which can then be prospectively utilized to select specific anti-leukemia therapies with the highest likelihood of success and with the lowest potential for acute and long term toxicities associated with therapy," according to Gregory Reaman, M.D., Chair of the Children's Oncology Group and Professor of Pediatrics at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. This will be the largest study of this kind according to Reaman and the subsequent phase of this study will hopefully be accomplished by this partnership between COG and CMM, with support from its joint venture partners, the Van Andel Institute and Spectrum Health, as well as Affymetrix.

About the CMM

The Center for Molecular Medicine, a joint venture between Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Spectrum Health and Van Andel Institute (VAI), brings West Michigan a cutting-edge laboratory that will aid in early diagnoses and enhance personalized medicine. It offers 21st century molecular technologies for investigation of complex diseases like cancer, heart disease, mental illness and other conditions at the DNA, RNA and protein levels. The Center brings new and increased opportunities for diagnostics and pharmaceutical companies to conduct trials in a world-class medical and clinical research environment.
