Prometheus and Bayer HealthCare Enter into Services Agreement to Conduct Mutational Analysis
Date:12/8/2010

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Laboratories Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical and diagnostic company, announced today the execution of an oncology-focused mutational analysis services agreement with Bayer Schering Pharma AG, Germany, a worldwide leading pharmaceutical company. The addition of this mutational analysis services agreement broadens Bayer's oncology-focused molecular and pathway activation profiling collaboration with Prometheus to include comprehensive mutational analyses.  The expanded information derived from this agreement has the potential to improve patient stratification in clinical studies and accelerate the development of novel oncology diagnostic and therapeutic products.

Under the terms of this agreement, Bayer will provide clinical samples, sourced from clinical studies, and Prometheus will perform mutational analyses that characterize the presence or absence of existing and novel cancer-relevant mutations in these samples. Prometheus will be compensated based on the number and complexity of mutational analyses it completes for Bayer.
