underlying genetic cause of diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. In contrast, Oragene•DNA offers easy and non-invasive self-collection of saliva samples from large numbers of people. In addition, Oragene•DNA delivers high quality DNA that is stable at ambient temperature for years.

"The success of the initial Spit for the Cure event in Arkansas gave us the idea to recruit donor participants during the Western New York Race for the Cure to increase our bank of genetic samples", said Christine Ambrosone, PhD, Director, Data Bank and BioRepository, Roswell Park Cancer Institute". These genetic samples will allow us to further investigate the underlying genetic causes of breast cancer with the goal to improve diagnosis, assist prognosis and identify specific targets for therapeutic intervention. Participants will be enthusiastic about using Oragene•DNA to contribute a sample once they know it is easy, non-invasive and has the vast potential to unlock the mysteries of breast cancer."

"DNA Genotek is pleased to join forces with the Roswell Park Cancer Institute to collect samples on-site at the Western New York Race for the Cure event," said Ian Curry, President and CEO, DNA Genotek. "One of our primary goals is to deliver high quality products for researchers and clinicians all over the world to advance disease research, prevention and treatment. We are so pleased to assist in the collection of DNA samples at this event and we're proud of our long-term association with the successful Susan G. Komen Spit for the Cure events."
