The Institut Curie and Ipsogen Sign a Scientific Collaboration Agreement Relating to the Genomic Grade, a Molecular Diagnostic Tool for Breast Cancer
Date:1/11/2010

PARIS and MARSEILLE, France, January 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The INSTITUT CURIE and IPSOGEN (FR0010626028 - ALIPS) announce the signing of a scientific collaboration agreement in the breast cancer domain. Within the framework of this project, the current scientific knowledge on Ipsogen's MapQuant Dx Grade Genomic, HER2 and HR tests will be increased thanks to new data established from a large population of patients treated at the Institut Curie. The aim of this collaboration is to evaluate these tests compared to current breast cancer characterization techniques. Indeed, these new tests could represent, for oncologists and pathologists, helpful decision-making tools enabling them to improve the diagnostic process and optimally adapt their therapeutic strategy to each patient.

Within the framework of this collaboration, the genomic analysis of 200 breast tumors will be performed on the Institut Curie's molecular diagnostic platform, using the expertise of the Institut Curie, in particular the translational research department and clinical teams specialized in breast cancer, and Ipsogen.

Sergio Roman-Roman, Head of Translational Research at the Institut Curie, states: "the existence, at the Institut Curie, of a bank of well-characterized human tumor samples, as well as a particularly strong genomic analysis platform, makes it possible to conduct a reliable assessment of molecular diagnostic tools such as the one that is the subject of this collaboration. The stakes are high because these tools, once validated via research such as those we are beginning today, can be a substantial aid to making therapeutic decisions for women with breast cancer."

Vincent Fert, CEO of Ipsogen, adds: "This first collaboration with the Institut Curie is very important for our company, and reflects the recognition of the quality of our development work. By pooling the complementary scientific and clinical know-how of
