BD and UCL Business Reach Exclusive License Agreement to Advance Development of New Diagnostic Tests for Ovarian and Breast Cancers
Date:2/9/2011

LONDON and FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UCL Business (UCLB), a wholly owned subsidiary of University College London (UCL), and BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, announced today an agreement aimed at improving the early detection of ovarian and breast cancers to ultimately enable earlier and more effective treatment.

"This agreement demonstrates how UCL and the Institute for Women's Health have become an international center of excellence for research, clinical care and training in the areas of women's health and cancer," said Professor Ian Jacobs, Dean of the UCL Faculty of Biomedical Science.  "We are delighted by our collaboration with BD and proud that our track record of excellence in cancer research, including laboratory science and major studies, such as the UK Collaborative Trial of Ovarian Cancer Screening (UKCTOCS), will aid in the research and development of new, more powerful diagnostics for ovarian and breast cancer."

The agreement negotiated by UCLB grants BD exclusive access to UCL's world-class "biobanks," containing more than 200,000 human patient samples collected over multiple years in prospective screening clinical trials for the detection and management of epithelial ovarian cancer.  BD will use these samples to develop and validate new biomarker assays. Financial terms were not disclosed.  

"The key to defeating ovarian and breast cancers is detecting the diseases early and managing them effectively.  This hinges on diagnostic tests that provide clinicians with timely and accurate information," said Wayne Brinster, Vice President and General Manager, Women's Health and Cancer, BD Diagnostics. "To develop new tests, you need to first validate them against a robust set of samples that very few institutions possess to assure the test is performing as planned.  The ability to access UCL's samples and work with its leading researchers
