Theranostics Health Announces Involvement with Major Academic Medical Center in Study Funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R)
Date:5/26/2009

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Theranostics Health, Inc. (TH) is pleased to announce its involvement in a five-year clinical research study funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. TH's collaborator, Duke University, was the recipient of a Promise Grant, part of over $25 million of investment by the foundation in 2009 to further the development of new prevention and treatment options for breast cancer.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of breast cancer patients through funding groundbreaking research. Since its inception nearly 30 years ago, the foundation has invested over $400 million. This year alone, grants will go to 54 universities and hospitals in 26 states and one foreign country, all for addressing the challenges associated with breast cancer.

Theranostics Health has been collaborating with researchers at Duke University as part of the collaboration agreement established in May 2008. Studies conducted by Theranostics Health with Dr. Victoria Seewaldt, MD, a Duke investigator, have provided the underlying rationale and preliminary data in support of the research proposed for the Promise Grant. Dr. Seewaldt is dedicated to discovering and developing new prevention and treatment strategies for each of her patients afflicted with breast cancer.

Theranostics Health will use its pathway mapping platform to measure signaling pathway activation in hundreds of key signaling proteins directly from randomly obtained periareolar breast fine-needle aspiration to assess individual response to chemoprevention in high-risk patients. This information can be used to develop a rapid test that matches the right prevention agent to each patient based on the biology of abnormal cells in each woman's body.

"The power of this new technology is that it gives us the possibility of tracking how a woman is
