Eisai

Roche, Shionogi, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and Eisai will provide the charity with specimens from Alzheimer's disease patients who participated in clinical studies.

The group will create a kitted next-generation sequencing tool that will help researchers and biopharma firms conduct biomarker discovery work on patient blood samples.

Tokyo-based Eisai develops drugs primarily for the neurology and oncology markets, including treatments for Parkinson's disease and breast cancer.

H3, a subsidiary of Japanese drugmaker Eisai, is developing personalized cancer treatments targeting genomic alterations, including aberrant RNA splicing.

Cancer Genetics will provide the services to support H3's development of H3B-8800, a Phase I small molecule-based blood cancer drug candidate.

The companies said they aim to discover next-generation tests that will enable early diagnosis of dementia, as well as treatment selection and monitoring.

Under the terms of the deal, Oncodesign will conduct in vivo pharmacology studies, while Eisai will do gene expression analysis.

Given its interest in developing treatments for Alzheimer's disease (AD), Japanese drugmaker Eisai is exploring the potential of plasma-based microRNAs to serve as biomarkers for the disease.

Seegene and Eidia, the in vitro diagnostics subsidiary of Japanese pharmaceutical firm Eisai, have entered into a collaborative agreement to bring new multiplex molecular diagnostic tests to Japan.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Seegene announced today that it has signed an agreement with Eidia to market the firm's molecular diagnostic products in Japan.
