Fox Chase Cancer Center signs agreement with Life Technologies Corp.
Date:6/13/2011

the initiative is to combine several institutional resources and a multidisciplinary team including scientists and clinicians to evaluate the ways that genomic sequencing can be used in patient management. Fox Chase clinicians will be able to assess a genomic analysis of a patient's tumor compared to their normal tissues. The service will utilize Life Technologies' sequencing and analysis platforms, including the SOLiD system, Ion Torrent semiconductor sequencing, and novel biological information technology systems for analysis of genomic data. It is expected that with appropriate resources and after rigorous testing and validation studies, genome sequencing can become a broadly used diagnostic tool integrated into the standard management of patients with cancer.

"We are proud to power the innovations in cancer care that Fox Chase Cancer Center researchers and clinicians will make," said Greg Lucier, chairman and CEO of Life Technologies. "We expect this model of industry and academic collaboration to demonstrate the effectiveness of sequencing in improving patient care."

The technology will also enable the Cancer Genome Institute at Fox Chase to create a genomic knowledge database. With patient consent, information linking the patient's tumor genotype, the oncologist's recommendation of targeted therapy, and the patient's clinical outcome will be made available to the research and clinical oncology community at large, while protecting the identity of the patient. The database will build on Fox Chase's already substantial Biosample Repository to add a critical additional layer of new knowledge about the genetic information in individual patient tumors.

Fox Chase will also use the database to accelerate the development of new cancer treatments through collaboration with its highly regarded phase 1 clinical trials program, which tests a broad spectrum of novel cancer therapeutics in patients with advanced cancer. The genetic informatio
