Biovica is uniquely positioned to address one of the major challenges in cancer therapy today; how to better evaluate therapeutic efficacy and improve quality of life in patients with advanced stages of the disease.

A simple blood sample

DiviTum™ is an innovative biomarker assay developed with the aim to monitor and predict treatment response in cancer therapy. It offers several advantages over alternative techniques that are standard in advanced breast cancer. In several clinical trials, the DiviTum™ biomarker assay has demonstrated the potential to quickly evaluate treatment effect and accurately predict outcome using just a simple blood sample.

New unique data from US breast cancer congress

The results demonstrate that palbociclib significantly reduced serum TK-activity levels in patients with hormone sensitive, HER2- breast cancer already after 2 weeks of treatment. DiviTum™ measured changes in serum TK-activity that was significantly correlated to the tumor Ki67 proliferation index. DiviTum™ may thus serve as a non-invasive marker and early response indicator of the anti-tumor effect of CDK4/6 inhibitors like palbociclib.
