Molecular Health AG Key Developments

MolecularHealth Appoints Gabriel Bien-Willner as Medical Director for U.S. Next-Generation Sequencing Lab

MolecularHealth announced the appointment of Gabriel Bien-Willner as medical director of its CLIA-certified next-generation sequencing lab in The Woodlands, Texas. Dr. Bien-Willner will report to Chief Medical Officer Dr. Shelly Gunn and manage the day-to-day clinical duties of the laboratory. Dr. Bien-Willner has expertise in genetics and genomics, next-generation sequencing technology and pipeline design.

MolecularHealth Launches MolecularHealth COPE

MolecularHealth announced the official launch of MolecularHealth COPE (Corporate Oncology Program for Employers), powered by its cancer treatment decision support offering, TreatmentMAP. COPE enables self-funded employers to offer access to TreatmentMAP to their employees via a pre-packaged offering, which includes materials for employees, as well as working closely with patients' physicians through the process of testing, analyzing and receiving results. SAP is working with MolecularHealth to become one of the first organizations to provide its employees with access to COPE and plans to offer it in the third quarter of 2014. SAP technology also plays a role in enabling COPE; the SAP Genomic Analyzer solution running on the SAP HANA platform is used in an early adoption phase to speed up the genome alignment process by a factor of 300 compared to previously used algorithms. TreatmentMAP generates an individual tumor analysis for each patient and then provides a clinical interpretation of the genomic patient data to support the patient's physician in making an individualized treatment decision. Based on a proprietary analytics engine, TreatmentMAP leverages the results of next generation sequencing (NGS) genetic testing. Now, for the first time and in a clear and understandable way, physicians and individuals diagnosed with cancer will have access to actionable information to guide the selection of cancer treatments. The TreatmentMAP offering, available from MolecularHealth offices in the United States and in Europe, is accessible to all patients diagnosed with solid tumor cancer, regardless of where they live.
