RiboMed and Austrian Institute of Technology Partner on Epigenetic Tests for Early Lung Cancer Detection, Sub-typing and Drug Response
Date:6/13/2013

Carslbad, California (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

RiboMed Biotechnologies, Inc. (ribomed.com) a company that develops epigenetic-based tests that provide improved cancer diagnosis and allow drug therapy to be personalized for the benefit of cancer patients, today announced that it has partnered with researchers at the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT, Vienna) to commercialize their clinically validated lung cancer DNA methylation biomarkers. Lung cancer is the number-one cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the U.S. and worldwide. The biomarkers will allow the early detection of lung cancer, as well as subtyping of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) into Adenocarcinoma or Squamous Cell Carcinoma, which are treated with different drugs. This detection and subtyping panel will not only allow physicians to diagnose the disease earlier, but will ensure that the patient receives the drug treatment that is specific for their type of cancer.

Dr. Martin Weber, Business Unit Head Molecular Diagnostics at AIT, said “Teaming up our innovative lung cancer DNA-methylation biomarker sets with RiboMed’s leading technology for epigenetic diagnostic tests is an important milestone for AIT. In our view this agreement is a first step to a successful commercialization of our biomarkers together with a partner that perfectly complements our own core competencies”. RiboMed has developed both a proprietary affinity protein, MethylMagnet®, to separate methylated and unmethylated DNA and an extremely sensitive signal generation process,
