CollabRx, Inc. to Collaborate with The University of Chicago Medical Center on Clinical Cancer Sequencing and Interpretation

CollabRx, Inc. announced a collaboration with the thoracic oncology program at the University of Chicago Medical Center. The joint initiative will combine CollabRx content and technology resources with the results of genetic sequencing-based tests conducted at the University of Chicago Medical Center. The tests are designed to enable physicians to consider a tumor's unique genetic profile in cancer treatment planning. The collaboration will be led at the University of Chicago Medical Center by Ravi Salgia, MD, PhD, a professor of medicine and vice chair of translational research at the University of Chicago. Under the terms of the collaboration, CollabRx will provide a turnkey medical informatics solution by pairing the results of cancer mutational panels conducted by Dr. Salgia and colleagues at the medical center with clinically actionable and dynamically updated knowledge provided by CollabRx. Such knowledge includes the clinical impact of specific mutational profiles and associated therapeutic strategies such as drugs and clinical trials. It is also supported by CollabRx's large and growing network of over 75 leading experts and clinical practitioners in the U.S. and Europe. The medical informatics solution will be customized, for example, by taking into account the clinical experience of Dr. Salgia and colleagues as well as highlighting clinical trials at the University of Chicago for which patients may be eligible based on their tumor's genetic signature. Academic-based cancer treatment and research centers are among the earliest adopters of next-generation technologies to support clinical sequencing of tumors for the purpose of improving cancer treatment planning. The collaboration with the thoracic oncology program at the University of Chicago Medical Center is indicative of CollabRx's intent to provide to these top-tier cancer treatment centers a customized interpretive service paired with clinical genetic sequencing tests.
