HAYWARD, Calif. (PRWEB) July 03, 2018
Predicine, a precision medicine company based in Silicon Valley, announced today that the company has entered into a global strategic partnership with Suzhou Kintor Pharmaceuticals to increase the speed and efficiency of biomarker-driven global clinical trials for Kintor’s novel oncology drugs and the development of companion diagnostics for FDA and CFDA approvals. Kintor will leverage Predicine’s ctRNA + ctDNA liquid biopsy technology, GeneRADAR, and expertise in genomics and molecular information to advance the development of its oncology pipeline.
Kintor's oncology pipeline focuses on prostate cancer, breast cancer and liver cancer, which are the three major cancers with a high incidence rate in the world. Kintor's investigational drug, Proxalutamide, is the first to participate in Marketing Authorization Holder in Jiangsu province in China. Proxalutamide is mainly applied in the treatment of prostate cancer and triple negative breast cancer. Over the past two years, Kintor and Predicine have entered into multiple collaborations to support Proxalutamide clinical trials (Ph1, Ph2, Ph3) in prostate cancer and breast cancer in China and the U.S.
Predicine specializes in genomic profiling assays and is dedicated to transforming patient care and clinical drug development. Predicine has developed “GeneRADAR”, the industry’s first ctRNA+ctDNA liquid biopsy test, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the molecular changes in cancer. Predicine initiated “Predi-Trial” to accelerate global clinical trials through biomarker-driven precision enrollment. GeneRADAR technology and its biomarker database identifies the molecular alterations in a patient's cancer and matches the patient with relevant targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and clinical trials. Through its CLIA laboratory in Hayward, CA and facility in Shanghai, Predicine partners with biopharmaceutical companies to support global clinical trials in China, U.S., Europe, APAC and Australia.
