DioGenix and Fast Forward Collaborate to Develop Blood-Based Molecular Diagnostic for Multiple Sclerosis
Date:11/8/2012

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DioGenix, Inc. today announced an alliance with Fast Forward, a subsidiary of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to develop a novel blood test for multiple sclerosis (MS). Fast Forward will provide up to $500,000 as part of a Sponsored Research Agreement that will enable DioGenix to expand an ongoing clinical trial of its MS diagnostic, MSPrecise™, a proprietary next-generation sequencing assay that measures changes to the adaptive immune system by analyzing B cells isolated from cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). This funding will allow DioGenix to determine if the same approach will work in blood samples.

The ability to now accurately identify early disease events affecting the adaptive immune system with next-generation sequencing provides a unique opportunity for an earlier diagnosis of MS and differentiation of disease subtypes. Validation of a DNA blood signature for MS is an important next step in DioGenix' plan to develop a neuro-immune panel that would distinguish other immune-mediated neurological diseases that share certain biological features with MS.

"We are pleased to partner with DioGenix in the advancement of this innovative technology for MS," said Timothy Coetzee, Ph.D., Chief Research Officer of the National MS Society. "Fast Forward's partnership with DioGenix reflects our commitment to develop new tools and technologies to assist physicians in making earlier and more confident diagnostic and treatment decisions for patients coping with neurological diseases, in particular with MS. We believe that these types of innovative programs are critical to improving the quality of life for people living with these diseases."

"Our collaboration with Fast Forward will allow us to more rapidly develop new tests that can have a profound impact on the lives of people living with MS. With this important funding, we can extend the utility of our already reliable CSF-based MS
