Geisinger and Indivumed Partner for Personalized Medicine Initiative
Date:7/15/2014

DANVILLE, Pa. and HAMBURG, Germany, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Indivumed, a leading provider of services enabling individualized cancer therapy, and Geisinger Health System (Geisinger), one of the largest integrated health systems in the United States serving approximately 3 million people, today announced a partnership that will afford Geisinger patients access to advanced cancer treatment and clinical trials.

The two organizations announced partnership plans in May 2013 and reached a formal agreement earlier this week.

The collaboration allows Indivumed to partner with Geisinger to collect samples from consenting patients who are already undergoing a surgical tumor resection. Upon resection, a portion of the tissue, blood or urine remaining beyond what is required to make a clinical diagnosis will be banked at Geisinger through MyCode™, a repository that holds more than 45,000 patient samples. Another portion will be banked by Indivumed, which will analyze the tissue to be used in the development and, eventually, application of targeted therapies for cancer patients.

"We are pleased to be working on this next generation of cancer treatment with  Indivumed, a company recognized as a global leader in the field of biobanking and translational research," said Glenn D. Steele Jr. M.D., Ph.D., president and chief executive officer at Geisinger Health System. "This partnership will give Geisinger patients access to the most advanced cancer  therapeutics in the country, close to where they live and work."

"Developing targeted pharmaceutical therapies for cancer patients is at the core of our collaboration with Geisinger," said Hartmut Juhl, founder and chief executive officer of Indivumed. "Geisinger's advanced electronic health record and clinical data repository couple
