Weill Cornell Medical College, New York Key Developments

OncoCyte Corporation and Cornell University Enter License Agreement to Accelerate Lung Cancer Diagnostic Product Development

BioTime Inc. and its subsidiary OncoCyte Corporation announced that OncoCyte has entered into a License Agreement with Cornell University through which Weill Cornell Medical College will provide blood samples derived from healthy people and lung cancer patients for comparative analysis using the company's proprietary PanC-Dx(TM) diagnostic tests. OncoCyte scientists will determine levels of tumor-associated gene expression in these samples, including assessing levels of its proprietary PanC-Dx(TM) cancer markers. The results of these analyses, along with the results of the nearly complete clinical study currently being conducted by OncoCyte's collaborators at The Wistar Institute, will be combined to produce a data set from over 700 patients. This data will be used by OncoCyte to assess the performance of potential cancer markers for the purpose of developing a multi-marker test for the detection of lung cancer. As part of the License, OncoCyte retains all rights to develop and market its proprietary lung cancer diagnostic products. PanC-Dx(TM) is a novel class of noninvasive cancer diagnostics that are based on a proprietary set of cancer markers characterized, in part, by broad expression patterns in numerous cancer types. The performance of the marker panel in determining the presence or the progression of disease in various categories of patients will determine the specific nature of the test to be developed and the approval pathway that OncoCyte will pursue.
