Xceed Molecular Signs University of Florida to Strategic Collaborator Program; Focus on Developing New Molecular Test to Diagnose Early-Stage Bladder Cancer
Date:4/16/2008

nd low-stage tumors can be easily missed. Too often, cancer is not diagnosed until after it has had a chance to progress. Nearly 14,000 Americans die annually from the disease.

"We are honored to work with the University of Florida on this important effort to find an earlier, more-effective way to diagnose and monitor this devastating disease," said Xceed President and CEO, David Deems. "Dr. Rosser and Dr. Goodison are the ideal collaborators, with the necessary experience to evaluate the potential of the signature to improve patient management."

Commenting on the collaboration, Dr. Rosser said, "We are excited to be developing our bladder cancer assay on Xceed's Ziplex System. It offers the first chance for us to perform our validation studies on a platform that is easy to use, cost-effective, and well suited for the clinical lab. The medical community has been looking for a better way to diagnose and monitor the disease. Seventy to 80 percent of bladder tumors are superficial, but 60 to 70 percent of these tumors will reoccur, and 20 to 30 percent will progress to a higher grade or stage -- so regular, aggressive surveillance is required. The current protocol calls for cystoscopy every three months for two years after diagnosis, followed by every six months for two years, followed by cystoscopy yearly. If we are successful in developing a urine assay to test for bladder cancer, it would not only potentially save lives, but would also reduce the need for frequent cystoscopies -- a welcome change to improve patients' quality of life."
