Date:4/28/2009

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Compendia Bioscience today announced a strategic collaboration with MDS Pharma Services to deliver OncoPredictor(SM) -- a novel solution for improved cancer drug development. OncoPredictor(SM) combines MDS Pharma Services OncoPanel(TM) with Compendia Bioscience's Oncomine(TM) for a solution that will provide guidance on patient groups most likely to respond to a new cancer therapy.

MDS Pharma Services OncoPanel(TM) service provides high content screening of up to 240 cancer cell lines to assess the cytotoxicity and chemotherapeutic potential of specific cancer drugs and drug combinations. Compendia's Oncomine(TM), a database of cancer genomic profiles coupled with an analysis web application, provides genomic characterization and comparison of cancer cell lines to 2,000 disease signatures from more than 27,000 reference patients based on molecular, pathological and histological sub-types. Through this collaboration, the OncoPredictor(SM) system will enable the analysis of drug sensitivity and resistance of novel drugs and drug combinations as well as the identification of associations with both disease sub-types and underlying tumor biology.

"Based on our experience working with 15 of the top 20 companies pursuing the development of cancer treatments, we believe this integrated solution could revolutionize cancer genomics for drug development," said Compendia CEO and Co-founder Dan Rhodes, Ph.D. "All of our customers are keenly interested in identifying which patients are mostly likely to respond to their new drugs. OncoPredictor(SM) provides the right experimental scale, in terms of cell line data and reference patient data, to deliver the answers our customers are seeking."

MDS Pharma Services is the only contract research organization with firsthand experience of delivering high quality cellular data on such a large scale using the exact growth and culture conditions from which the genomic data in Oncomine(TM) was generated.

"MDS Pharma Services clearly provides unique experience and capabilities," continued Rhodes. "We do not believe we could have identified a better partner to co-develop this solution."

The solution will be delivered as a stand-alone, end-to-end service and will not require a license to any of Compendia's Oncomine offerings.

"MDS Pharma Services is pleased to collaborate with Compendia Bioscience to develop OncoPredictor(SM), which will help clients developing cancer treatments to do so more effectively and quickly," said David Spaight, MDS Pharma Services president. "Compendia Bioscience is a leader in the field of cancer genomics and Oncomine(TM) has become a standard platform in the industry. We believe our joint solution - OncoPredictor(SM) - can also become an industry standard in oncology drug development at a cost affordable for both large and smaller companies"
