PierianDx Announces Multi-Year Agreement with Illumina to Support Cancer Research and Diagnostics

Jaa

PierianDx, a leading clinical genomics informatics company, today announced a strategic, non-exclusive, multi-year partnership with Illumina, Inc. to provide a variant interpretation and reporting solution based on PierianDx’s Clinical Genomics Workspace platform and Clinical Genomics Knowledgebase for select Illumina oncology products. Under the agreement, PierianDx and Illumina will offer customers the option of informatics capabilities for Illumina oncology products, including Illumina’s TruSight™ Tumor 170 and TruSight™ Oncology 500, which are currently intended for research use only (RUO). The partnership extends to support Illumina’s future oncology in vitro diagnostic (IVD) offerings. Advancing cancer diagnostics and making targeted therapeutics more accessible to healthcare systems, laboratories, and patients worldwide is a key focus of both parties.

“Accessibility of genomic testing in clinical oncology is critical to realizing the promise of immuno- and targeted therapies and personalized medicine,” stated Rakesh Nagarajan, MD, PhD, Founder and Executive Chairman, PierianDx. “Today, few laboratories have the ability to offer comprehensive tumor profiling because of the complexities associated with validating large NGS assays and interpreting genomic results. This agreement between PierianDx and Illumina has the potential to provide laboratories clinically optimized solutions that may accelerate assay validation and deployment and simplify genomic interpretation.”

“The combination of Illumina’s comprehensive tumor profiling assays with PierianDx’s variant interpretation and reporting solutions will provide customers with a seamless experience,” said Garret Hampton, PhD, Executive Vice President of Clinical Genomics at Illumina.

“PierianDx is thrilled to receive this substantial validation of our genomics Software as a Service (‘SaaS’) platform by a global leader in our space. Our relationship with Illumina will allow us to greatly accelerate our U.S. and international strategic plans as we seek to be the wisdom behind every genomics report,” said Michael L. Sanderson, CEO of PierianDx.

Under the agreement Illumina and its affiliates will be responsible for the distribution of the RUO oncology products and packaged solutions. Laboratories that purchase the RUO products from Illumina will have an option to receive from PierianDx standardized reporting, driven by professional guidelines for streamlined case review and sign-out. In addition, laboratories who purchase the bundled RUO oncology product with the PierianDx informatics solution will receive access to PierianDx’s Clinical Genomics Workspace for analysis, interpretation, and reporting of genomic results. Laboratories will also have the opportunity to engage PierianDx for additional services such as genomic interpretation, medical sign-out, and electronic medical record integration.

Pfizer Secures Exclusive Option to Acquire Gene Therapy Company Vivet Therapeutics20.3.2019 13:45:00 EETTiedote

Vivet Therapeutics (“Vivet”), a privately held gene therapy biotech company dedicated to developing gene therapy treatments for inherited liver disorders with high unmet medical need, and Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) announced today that Pfizer has acquired a 15% equity interest in Vivet and secured an exclusive option to acquire all outstanding shares. Pfizer and Vivet will collaborate on the development of VTX-801, Vivet’s proprietary treatment for Wilson disease. Wilson disease is a devastating, rare, chronic, and potentially life-threatening liver disorder of impaired copper transport that causes serious copper poisoning. In patients with Wilson disease, a monogenetic mutation disables the normal copper biliary excretion pathway leading to excess copper accumulation in the liver and other organs including the central nervous system. Untreated, Wilson disease results in various combinations and severity of hepatic (fibrosis and cirrhosis), neurologic and psychiatric symptoms, which can b
