QIAGEN and Exosome Diagnostics to Develop First-In-Class, Non-Invasive Diagnostics for Key Genetic Biomarkers in Lung and Other Cancers
Date:1/13/2014

GERMANTOWN, Maryland, and HILDEN, Germany, January 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


  • Expanding collaboration to develop FDA-regulated diagnostics based on exosomes to measure gene mutations targeted by new anti-cancer therapies
  • Non-invasive detection of biomarkers from blood reduces patient risk and advances access to the benefits of personalized medicine
  • Automated biofluid-based molecular diagnostics have significant potential to replace many costly and invasive tissue biopsies and add new testing options
  • QIAGEN set to launch during 2014 the first in a series of new sample preparation kits for processing nucleic acids from biofluid exosomes

QIAGEN N.V. (NASDAQ: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) today announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Exosome Diagnostics Inc. to develop a first-in-class, non-invasive molecular in-vitro diagnostics for use in diagnosing and monitoring patients. The novel blood based diagnostic detects certain mutations of an undisclosed gene associated with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and other malignancies and has the potential to be paired with several new anticancer therapeutics. QIAGEN will have worldwide exclusive rights for commercialization and intends to submit the test to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) following clinical validation. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Exosomes are the messenger packages in a fundamental biological communication system that transmits genetic instructions from cell to cell. The technology developed by Exosome Diagnostics allows non-invasive detection of key disease associated gene mutations and gene expressions in blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid without the need for a risky and burdensome surgical tissue biopsy.
