NextGen introduces its first generation of animal biomarker products for development of brain disorder diagnostics
Date:6/15/2012

LONDON and ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NextGen Group Plc (AIM: NGG), the AIM listed company developing its own diagnostics product pipeline and providing diagnostic biomarker development services, announces the commercialisation of a new assay for the identification of diagnostic biomarkers in brain disorders in animal models.

The assay measures protein markers in rat cerebrospinal fluid and will expand the product offering of NextGen's contract research subsidiary, NextGen Sciences Inc.

An assay is the procedure for measuring the effects of a chemical in an organism. For example, assays are used to discover biomarkers which are in turn used to identify the existence and progression of a disease. Biomarkers are used in clinical trials to aid in patient selection and to evaluate the effectiveness of a drug. They are also used in the development of companion diagnostics that will drive the growth of the personalised medicine market.

There is a significant need for biomarkers to monitor and diagnose central nervous system disorders, such as dementia, Parkinson's disease and neuropsychological disorders, within the patient care and drug development industries.

NextGen's "CSFassay-rat A.1.0" product is capable of measuring 62 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteins simultaneously that have been identified as likely biomarkers in various central nervous system (CNS) disorders.

Barry McAleer, PhD, CEO of NextGen Sciences Inc says: "Assays that can discover biomarkers in animal models will enhance the drug development process within the pharmaceutical industry and could lead to reduced attrition in the drug development process. With the introduction of the CSFassay-rat A.1.0 we have delivered on the first phase of ongoing product development plans that enables us to support and enhance the pre-clinical drug development programs of our customers. This new product and those currently in development are already attracting i
