Biovica’s DiviTum® acknowledged in ASCO educational book
Uppsala, Sweden, May 22, 2020. The ASCO educational book 2020 highlights DiviTum® as a solution to address unmet needs within monitoring treatment effect of CDK4/6 inhibitors.
The authors Erik S. Knudsen, PhD at Roswell Park Cancer Center, Geoffrey I. Shapiro, MD, PhD at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Khandan Keyomarsi, PhD at MD Anderson conclude that: “These preliminary results highlight the potential for serum TK1 activity to act as a noninvasive biomarker for CDK4/6 inhibitor target engagement.” The authors also summarize the clinical trials that demonstrate the ability of DiviTum to identify CDK4/6 treatment resistance.
“It is very rewarding to receive this type of recognition from ASCO, the world's leading professional cancer organization. The authors state that DiviTum® can potentially be a tool for monitoring treatment effect of CDK4/6 inhibitors. I am thrilled that many years of clinical research by our team together with leading breast cancer clinicians has led to positive scientific review in a highly respected setting. We look forward to the results of ongoing clinical studies with DiviTum®,” said Anders Rylander, CEO of Biovica.
