Avantra Biosciences and MedTrust Online Partner to Develop Clinically Important Protein Biomarker Assays for Improving Cancer Care
Date:2/22/2011

WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedTrust Online (MedTrust) and Avantra Biosciences (Avantra) announced today a novel collaboration to involve clinicians in the earliest stages of molecular diagnostic assay development for Avantra Biosciences' revolutionary QPDx™ multiplex immunoassay system.

The two companies will provide a global community of over 10,000 cancer care professionals with early access to the latest panels of protein biomarkers implicated in different cancers.  Avantra, based in Woburn, MA, is a leading innovator in protein diagnostics and recently announced the commercialization of the new Q400 Biomarker Workstation and innovative AngioGenQx™ BioChip immunoassay.  The system provides quantitative protein biomarker results for ten analytes in less than an hour, requiring only five minutes for sample preparation.  

As Avantra's scientific development team identifies biomarkers of interest for its QPDx™ system, MedTrust will use its Knowledge Medicine™ platform to engage oncologists in online discussions that will validate the role of different panels in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment efficacy in cancer care.  The first of several multiplex assays to be evaluated include an upcoming panel developed in the recently announced collaboration between Avantra and TGen Drug Development.  Avantra intends to develop additional panels that may target ovarian, pancreatic, lung, prostate, breast, and colorectal cancers to uncover associations between protein marker levels and patient drug responses that can positively impact clinical decisions.   Currently available for research use only (RUO), Avantra intends to seek regulatory approval for its assay technologies as the clinical utility of the molecular information becomes evident.   In addition to oncology, Avantra is exploring opportunities in other areas such as infectious disease through its upcoming panel for sepsis.
