QIAGEN to Develop New Companion Diagnostic for Compound in Clinical Trials for Blood Cancers
Date:9/5/2011

GERMANTOWN, Maryland, September 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

- QIAGEN assay for JAK2 V617F mutation aims to identify patients more likely to respond to Lilly's 'JAK2 inhibitor' and to monitor responses to therapy

- Lilly will co-develop companion diagnostic

- QIAGEN's exclusive access to JAK2 biomarker underpins potential future expansion with additional Pharma compounds targeting gene

QIAGEN (NASDAQ: QGEN; Frankfurt, Prime Standard: QIA) today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Eli Lilly and Company for the development, manufacturing and commercialization of a molecular companion diagnostic for an early stage investigational compound currently being developed by Lilly. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Lilly's proprietary compound, called a JAK2 inhibitor, targets the Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) gene, which has been shown to play a role in myeloproliferative neoplasms, a variety of blood cancers that cause blood cells to grow abnormally.

Under the terms of the agreement, QIAGEN will develop a new companion diagnostic test that will provide both qualitative and quantitative results for JAK2 V617F. The assay is intended to identify patients most likely to benefit from treatment with inhibitors of the pathway. The scope of the partnership includes development and use of the QIAGEN JAK2 assay during clinical trials and also covers manufacturing and joint commercialization of the diagnostic product in parallel with the Lilly compound.

QIAGEN gained exclusive access to the JAK2 biomarker through an agreement with Ipsogen, a French company that is a pioneer in profiling and biomarkers for leukemia and other blood cancers. In June, QIAGEN announced a proposal to fully acquire Ipsogen through a process that is under way. The JAK2 pathway is considered to bring high value to drug development in terms of defining and
