Panacea Pharmaceuticals Announces the Availability of BC Detect(SM), a Serum- Based Diagnostic Test for Breast Cancer
Date:10/17/2007

marker, in blood. HAAH has been detected by immunohistochemical staining (IHC) in a broad range of cancers including breast cancer. In addition, HAAH protein levels in serum have been demonstrated to be highly sensitive and specific for cancer in hundreds of patients with a range of cancer types, including breast cancer. Increased levels of HAAH have been found in the serum of 96% of women with breast cancer (n=157). In women not known to have cancer, HAAH was essentially undetectable in serum (n=32, specificity = 91%). HAAH was elevated in serum from women with all stages of breast cancer; mean serum HAAH levels for stages I - IV were 19, 13, 21 and 15 ng/ml, respectively. In addition, serum from women currently in remission (n=35) following treatment for breast cancer were also analyzed and found to be negative for HAAH.

"Measurement of serum HAAH levels using BC Detect(SM) has great promise as a diagnostic tool to monitor women with a history of breast cancer for disease recurrence", commented Pamela Jo Harris, MD, Vice President, Medical and Clinical Affairs at Panacea. "BC Detect(SM), in conjunction with routine follow-up imaging modalities should facilitate earlier identification of recurrent disease and prompt initiation of appropriate therapy."

About Panacea's Oncology Platform

In addition to BC Detect(SM), Panacea offers, PC Detect(SM), a diagnostic test used in conjunction with PSA and digital rectal exam to identify patients with prostate cancer, LC Detect(SM), a diagnostic test to aide in the detection of patients with lung cancer, and TK Sensesm, which determines whether white blood cells from patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) are sensitive or resistant to imatinib, the therapy of first choice for CML patients, prior to initiation of therapy.

The HAAH serum assay will be further developed as a diagnostic test for other types of cancer. Panacea is also pursuing the development of antibodies directed against HAAH as
