ROCKVILLE, Md., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Theranostics Health announced that it has received an exclusive license from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to commercialize microdissection including Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) combined with protein analysis for cancer diagnostics and companion diagnostics. Under the terms of the agreement, Theranostics Health will pay NIH the customary license issue royalties, minimum annual royalties, benchmark and earned royalties upon successful commercialization of the technology.

This licensed technology allows us to precisely collect and analyze the specific cells of interest from patient samples." "But this is only the first step," according to Dr. Emanuel F. Petricoin, co-inventor of the technology, co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of the Company, "our unique signaling pathway profiling platform allows the activity of theranostic biomarkers of interest to be quantitatively measured from microdissected patient samples.
