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

d with our ability to comprehensively analyze patients' individual cancers provides a unique opportunity to quickly translate new scientific discoveries into the practice of medicine."

Indivumed will integrate its unique biobanking standard at Geisinger Health System to jointly create a platform that offers extraordinary opportunities for clinical research focused on tumor biology.

Based in Hamburg, Germany, Indivumed is an integrated oncology company that leverages its biorepository of human tissue samples with its diagnostic laboratory to develop individual  cancer therapies. Indivumed maintains a biobank of tissues and annotated data from more than 20,000 patients – with about 1,500 new cases added per year–each collected under stringent specifications. The overall goal is understanding the biological difference between tumors and how patients respond to treatment to support the implementation of personalized therapy.

Research demonstrates that proteins change expression profiles significantly within minutes following surgical resection. Many of those proteins may serve as biomarkers for new drugs. For this reason, controlled and rapid tissue processing is necessary for understanding biological differences of or within patient tumors, especially when developing targeted therapies.

Indivumed follows highly standardized processes that enable the company to limit cold ischemia time – the time between removal of tissue from the body and the time it is preserved – to less than 10 minutes, guaranteeing tissue samples of the highest biological integrity.

"The goal of this partnership is to translate clinical research into specific knowledge about a cancer that is clinically relevant and will enhance patient care," Dr. Steele noted. "We continually strive to look for innovation opportunities to provide our patients with the most advanced care modern science has to offer."
