GenomeDx Expands Collaboration with Mayo Clinic

SAN DIEGO, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GenomeDx Biosciences announced today that it has expanded an existing research agreement with the Mayo Clinic. The expanded agreement includes exclusive license to certain Mayo developed intellectual property along with exclusivity covering co-developed intellectual property.   The agreement also includes continued access to the clinical data concerning Mayo Clinic's cohort of prostate cancer samples to allow for longer-term follow up and evaluation of biomarkers. The initial collaboration entered in 2009 led to the development of Decipher™, a transformative genomic test that forecasts risk of metastasis in men with prostate cancer. In addition, GenomeDx announced that five studies evaluating the ability of Decipher to predict metastatic prostate cancer will be featured at the 2013 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting.

"Access to the Mayo Clinic's comprehensive cohort of samples from patients classified as high risk for metastatic disease and the involvement of Mayo Clinic researchers has been essential to the development of Decipher," said Doug Dolginow , M.D., Chief Executive Officer of GenomeDx. "With Mayo Clinic's large collection of patient samples that had developed metastatic disease, we could reliably identify and validate gene sequences associated with lethal prostate cancer and to create the Decipher test."
