LabCorp Exclusively Licenses Yale s Blood Test for Epithelial Ovarian Cancer

NEW YORK, Feb. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Laboratory Corporation of America announced yesterday that it has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Yale University to commercialize the university's new blood testing technology for epithelial ovarian cancer.


Under terms of the agreement, Yale will receive signing, milestone and royalty fees.


The new epithelial ovarian cancer test is based on a collection of serum proteins associated with cancer biology. Each protein marker is analyzed using an ELISA assay, and a statistical analysis is then performed to score the combined results.
