Biovica, active in blood-based cancer monitoring, today announces that a clinical trial, BettER, is being launched at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The study is aimed at evaluating whether patients with HR+ HER2- metastatic or unresectable breast cancer benefit from DiviTum® TKa

"We are thrilled to once again collaborate with Washington University on another trial. This time it is a translational trial, which if successful would pave the way for increased uptake of DiviTum TKa, for the benefit of breast cancer patients," said Anders Rylander, CEO of Biovica.

“We are excited to offer patients with ER+ HER2- advanced breast cancer the opportunity to incorporate TK testing with the goal of further tailoring treatment, reducing unnecessary toxicity and improving patient outcomes,” says Katherine Clifton, M.D who is a breast medical oncologist and the lead investigator of the trial at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The BettER study seeks to evaluate the impact of early therapeutic switching based on biomarker-driven insights, utilizing DiviTum TKa to guide treatment decisions. The study will enroll 50 patients, assessing the effectiveness of modifying treatment based on TKa levels measured at baseline and shortly after treatment initiation. Patients demonstrating insufficient TKa suppression will be recommended for an alternative therapy, potentially enhancing treatment outcomes.
