EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc Enters into Two Year Research Collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital to Develop PointMan Assays to Effectively Detect Treatable Cancer Mutations in Blood Samples

EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc announced that it has entered into two year research collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital to develop PointMan assays that can effectively detect treatable cancer mutations in blood samples. The collaboration agreement has been signed following a detailed evaluation of PointMan DNA enrichment technology by MGH and will cover a two year long project focusing on lung, breast and skin cancer. MGH will use PointMan DNA enrichment technology for the detection of genetic variation in circulating tumour cells (CTCs) isolated from a patient's blood using MGH's CTC-Chip instrument. CTCs are shed by primary tumors allowing the cancer to metastasise. CTCs are extremely rare in whole blood and their isolation and characterisation could offer clinicians a routine method with which to diagnose, treat and monitor the progress of various cancers. The main difficulty in successfully analysing CTCs has been the ability to detect low level mutations sufficiently and to create assays that are sensitive enough to provide meaningful data; difficulties which PointMan may be able to effectively overcome. EKF Molecular will design and develop high sensitivity assays which will be utilised by MGH with a view to clinically validating PointMan in the detection of existing and novel mutations, a major step towards the improvement of patient outcomes in the hospital.
