Transgenomic Signs Exclusive License for Cold-PCR Technology From the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Date:10/8/2009

OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Transgenomic, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: TBIO). The company announced today that it has licensed a high-sensitivity mutation detection technology called Cold-PCR from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), Boston, MA. This variation of the standard PCR technology enriches mutations in DNA samples and is a much more sensitive technique for finding low level mutations in tissue and body fluids that are involved with a variety of diseases. Cold-PCR was invented at DFCI by Dr. Mike Makrigiorgos who has demonstrated its effectiveness in enriching for mutations in cancer-related genes in samples where standard DNA sequencing is not sensitive enough to detect these very low concentration somatic DNA mutations. The licensing terms include exclusive rights to commercialize Cold-PCR technology combined with Sanger sequencing as well as all applications for mitochondrial DNA analysis.

Cold-PCR will have applicability in detection of cancer-related mutations where critical mutations are present at a very low percentage compared to normal DNA. Examples would be in blood and urine or where the tissue collected contains mostly normal cells. This would allow clinicians to use less intrusive methods for genetic analysis or allow more efficient use of tumor tissue samples. Additionally the method could enhance the detection of the emergence of cancer-drug resistance mutations, allowing early detection of relapse.

Transgenomic CEO Craig Tuttle noted: "We believe that Cold-PCR is a critical addition to our high-sensitivity mutation detection portfolio of cutting edge technologies. It will allow us to continue offering affordable, state-of-the-art solutions to challenging areas of genetic analysis and, we hope, allow us to be able to screen patient blood for early detection of cancer, detect cancer drug resistance or relapse earlier as well as expand our mitochondrial DNA analysis toolbox. We have long wante
