Precision Therapeutics Announces New Tumor Profiling Product to Augment Utility of ChemoFx® and Further Personalize Cancer Treatment
Date:4/7/2011

PITTSBURGH, April 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Precision Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the launch of a new product line, BioSpeciFx®, will help further the personalization of cancer treatments.  BioSpeciFx® is composed of carefully selected sets of well validated and clinically useful biomarker tests that identify critical molecular targets within a patient's cell.  By using the information generated by BioSpeciFx® in combination with Precision's sophisticated drug response marker ChemoFx®, physicians may gain a more complete understanding of a patient's tumor.

When combined, both products offer a complementary sum of information which will enable physicians to look at both the relevant molecular targets as well as the synergistic activity of drug combinations on the entire cell.  BioSpeciFx® provides proteomic and genomic information, while ChemoFx® takes into account all of the functional characteristics of a tumor including those not captured by biomarker testing, providing both sensitivity and resistance information.

"The Comprehensive Tumor Profile developed by Precision presents the most complete offering available to cancer patients today, because it integrates both genomic and proteomic information with the functional profiling of ChemoFx®," says Sean McDonald, CEO of Precision Therapeutics.  "We are very excited to provide physicians with a closer look at each patient's tumor as we continue to develop products aimed at personalizing treatments for cancer patients."
