QIAGEN partners to develop predictive tests in oncology

Yesterday, we announced that QIAGEN was entering into a licensing and co-development agreement with Therawis Diagnostics GmbH to develop and commercialize predictive assays in oncology. An initial project will be to develop and market PITX2 as a marker to predict effectiveness of anthracycline treatment in triple negative and other high-risk breast cancer patients.

We will demonstrate our Sample to Insight solutions for molecular diagnostic and research applications in oncology at Booth 18031 at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2016 Annual Meeting on June 3-7, 2016, in Chicago. Click here for more information on QIAGEN’s presence at ASCO.
