Evotec Receives First Milestone in Roche Biomarker Collaboration
News Apr 24, 2014
The milestone was achieved on the decision by Roche to use a response prediction marker, identified using Evotec's Proteome Profiling platform, in an extended phase I oncology trial.
This is the first minor milestone achieved under the collaboration and licence agreement between Evotec and Roche, signed in 2011, which is part of the m4 Munich Biotech Cluster Personalized Medicine and Targeted Therapiesinitiative funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Under the initial three-year term, Evotec and Roche conduct biomarker discovery and validation programmes for patient stratification in targeted cancer therapy. Evotec is eligible for further success-based payments upon clinical companion diagnostics development.
Dr Mario Polywka, Chief Operating Officer of Evotec AG, commented: "We are delighted with receiving this milestone and the first validation of our novel biomarker concept with Roche. I would like to thank everyone involved in the project to date for the fantastic science they have developed and for the hard work and determination to see it succeed in a clinical setting."
