With Grant Funding, Empire Advancing Potential Companion Test for Proteasome Inhibitors | GenomeWeb

Empire Genomics has discovered a genetic mutation that early studies suggest might be linked to increased response to a class of drugs called proteasome inhibitors.

If Empire can successfully develop a test that gauges this mutation and can predict which patients will respond to proteasome inhibitors, such as Velcade, such a diagnostic could help doctors personalize treatment for multiple myeloma patients.
