RayBiotech, Inc. and Abeome Corporation Announce an Agreement Related to Novel Research Products for Ovarian Cancer
Date:11/1/2012

NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RayBiotech, Inc. and Abeome Corporation today announced that the companies have entered into a collaboration whereby Abeome will provide over 300 novel monoclonal antibodies recognizing human ovarian cancer for use in the development of RayBiotech's antibody-related portfolio of products.  These antibodies recognize ovarian cancer but not normal ovary tissue.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

RayBiotech's President, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder, Rani Huang stated, "Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease and most often goes undetected until very late stages of progression.  This alliance with Abeome will enable RayBiotech to provide products and services for the preclinical characterization of ovarian cancer-related biological samples.  We are delighted to have entered into this agreement with another Georgia-based bioreagent company."

Abeome's President and CEO, Dr. Richard Shimkets said, "We are very pleased to be working with RayBiotech in providing key reagents for studying ovarian cancer.   These antibodies, made with Abeome's patented DiSH™ technology, are the result of a unique direct immunization of mice with human ovarian cancer cells.   It is our hope that their use will help define better diagnostic and therapeutic options for ovarian cancer patients."

About Ovarian Cancer

Approximately 22,000 women in the United States will develop ovarian cancer in 2012, 80% of which will not live more than 5 years after diagnosis.  Ovarian cancer is very treatable if detected early, but limited screening options are available that can detect early-stage disease.  In September of 2012, an expert panel of the United Stated Preventative Services Task Force concluded that existing diagnostic tests do more harm than good in screening healthy woman, as high false-positive results (~10%) lead to more than 1000 unnecessary surgeries per year, 15% of which have serious complications.
