Critical Step Toward Commercialization of Pre-Symptomatic Diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer Achieved by Arrayit Diagnostics
Date:12/9/2009

HOUSTON, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Arrayit Diagnostics, Inc., a majority-owned subsidiary of Arrayit Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: ARYC), today announced that it has signed an exclusive License Agreement with Wayne State University to key intellectual property covering discoveries of biomarkers of ovarian cancer. The agreement with Wayne State University grants Arrayit exclusive worldwide rights to develop and commercialize a novel microarray-based diagnostic test using biomarkers developed by Professors Michael Tainsky of the School of Medicine and Sorin Draghici of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Madhumita Chatterjee, research associate in the School of Medicine. The test aims to effectively screen for early stage ovarian cancer in women who are not yet symptomatic.

According to the National Cancer Institute, it is estimated that 21,550 women will be diagnosed with and 14,600 women will die of cancer of the ovary in 2009 - making it the fourth leading cause of death in women in the United States. Moreover, based on rates from 2004-2006, 1.4% of women born today will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at some point during their lifetime. The disease presents with largely nonspecific symptoms during the initial stages of cancer progression, however there is currently no adequate screening or diagnostic test for early stage detection. As a result, most ovarian cancers are diagnosed only when later stage symptoms manifest and the disease has metastasized to other parts of the body. The five-year survival rate for late stage diagnosis is less than 20%, which compares to an approximate 90% survival rate if the disease is identified at the earliest stages.

John Howell, Chairman, President and CEO of Arrayit Diagnostics, noted, "Distinguished among 'America's Best Colleges' by US News and World Report and the National Science Foundation research rankings, Wayne State University is gl
