Theranostics Health Signs Research Collaboration Agreement
Date:5/15/2008

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Theranostics Health (THX) today announced that it has entered into a three-year master research collaboration agreement with Duke University. This relationship will provide Duke investigators access to the company's core technologies: Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) and Reverse Phase Protein Microarray (RPMA). The proprietary combination of these technologies provides a powerful mechanism to accurately and reliably measure the aberrant protein signaling and protein molecular networks used by tumor cells obtained directly from a patient's biopsy. This information can be used to investigate patient-specific treatments and individual treatment regimens, and also, to better understand the mechanisms of tumorigenesis in order to discover and develop new, safer and more effective therapies.

According to Dr. Neil Spector, Director of Duke's Translational Research Oncology Program, "those of us at Duke who are going to participate in this umbrella agreement with Theranostics Health are excited about the insight this collaboration may provide on the use of phosphoproteomics to shed light on the complexities of the signaling networks that regulate tumor cell growth, survival, migration/invasion, and resistance to targeted therapies. We are intrigued by the possibility of applying this information to investigate more effective therapies for our patients."

"The future of cancer treatment is personalized, targeted therapies and patient stratification for clinical trials," says Dr. Emanuel Petricoin, CSO of Theranostics Health. "We believe that this research collaboration with Duke, one of the top institutions in the world, will provide an important next step for our company in both research applications at the bench as well as working together with Duke investigators during phase I, II and III clinical trials."

Dr. Danong Chen, President and CEO of Theranostics Health, is equally optimistic about the master r
