QIAGEN Gains Rights to Genomic Biomarkers for Lung, Brain and Other Cancers to Expand its Pipeline of Companion Diagnostics
Date:1/9/2012

h are increasingly guiding the treatment decisions in various cancers and other diseases," said Peer Schatz, Chief Executive Officer of QIAGEN. "The two agreements announced today add to our portfolio the ALK biomarker, which is being targeted by several pharmaceutical companies for new anti-cancer treatments, as well as the IDH1/IDH2 biomarker, which is currently playing a critical role in intense R&D activity for candidate medicines targeting brain gliomas and other cancers. In addition to providing these assays to researchers, we intend to develop companion diagnostics to make these biomarkers available in combination with new medicines."

The strategic co-development partnership and licensing agreement with Insight Genetics, a molecular diagnostics company focused on enhancing personalized cancer care, gives QIAGEN worldwide exclusive rights to Insight Genetics' diagnostic IP to the ALK gene. The companies will collaborate in the development of a corresponding test that can be clinically validated and marketed by QIAGEN as a companion diagnostic. Mutations of ALK are implicated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and other cancers, and several anticancer compounds known as ALK inhibitors, are in clinical trials. One ALK inhibitor has been approved by the FDA, but it is currently paired with a diagnostic method that can be technically challenging and costly.

Through its 89% subsidiary Ipsogen S.A., QIAGEN gained exclusive rights to diagnostics for IDH1/IDH2 mutations from Personal Genome Diagnostics Inc., a biotechnology company founded by experts in cancer genetics. In 2008, those scientists reported the discovery of mutations in IDH1/IDH2 in connection with brain cancers, including early-stage and late-stage gliomas. Subsequent studies have implicated IDH1/IDH2 mutations in AML and other cancers. Assays that detect and measure the biomarker could prove valuable for research into these diseases, differential diagnosis, and development of
