biomarker discovery

The $20 million deal expands Caliper's operations into the digital pathology and tissue imaging markets.

Proteome Sciences will provide biomarker analysis services for the J&J company.

BU will use grants from NCI and DOD with partners at UCLA, Vanderbilt, and MD Anderson to develop early-stage lung cancer diagnostics.

The firms will use DiaGenic's gene expression technology in a study to identify biomarkers related to patients who progress from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's.

The institute seeks to fund researchers who will study biomarkers that could detect mitochondrial dysfunction and its links to environmental stressors and exposures.

The purchase of Clinical Data's genetic testing assets gives Transgenomic 11 marketed tests for inherited heart diseases under the Familion brand, PGxPredict tests gauging drug response, tests targeting Fc gamma receptor biomarkers, and a Plavix response test under development.

The goal of the project, called Hepachronix, is to gain a better understanding of how liver fibrosis progresses from early, mild stage to debilitating diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatoma carcinoma.

The biomarkers will be used to predict clinical response to an Astrimmune vaccine, which induces antibody production against gastrin.

Sage will develop a predictive model and identify regulatory genes and predictive biomarkers. The two partners will then discover and prioritize the targets.

The institute and the drugmaker will collaborate to identify and validate oncology targets, and Sanofi-Aventis will then do further work to develop therapeutic agents against the targets and related biomarkers.
