GlaxoSmithKline Collaborates with National Cancer Institute to Make Large Body of Cancer Cell Genomic Data Available to All Cancer Researchers
Date:6/20/2008

GSK, "Cataloging this type of information in a network like caBIG(TM) leads to a ready-made body of biologic information that can be mined by all cancer researchers to further everyone's understanding of cancer. In turn, we hope this data will further drive the identification of predictive biomarkers and lead to shorter, more directed clinical trials allowing us to bring drugs more quickly to patients who need them."

The genomic data being shared by GSK through caBIG(TM) come from cell lines derived from a wide variety of tumors, including breast, prostate, lung and ovarian cancers. Researchers at academic institutions, small research facilities and non-profit organizations may benefit by not having to incur the prohibitive cost and time involved in identifying and cataloging each cell line.

"The ability for researchers to share data via the caBIG(TM) network is exactly what this initiative was designed to enable," said Robert Clarke, Ph.D., D.Sc., professor of oncology and physiology and biophysics at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of Georgetown University Medical Center and Georgetown University Hospital. "As more scientists throughout the cancer community, in the US and globally, use caBIG(TM) and find it easy to share data and collaborate, both basic and clinical research will be improved. We're excited about what this cancer cell data might provide to other researchers and we also hope it will be a catalyst for other organizations to follow the GSK example."

The NCI launched the caBIG(TM) initiative in 2004 to accelerate the research and discovery of new approaches to the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Since that time, more than 200 organizations and 1000 individuals have helped to create more than 40 biomedical research tools such as caArray, the microarray data management system that is guiding the annotation and supporting the exchange of the cancer cell array data provided by GSK.
