Uppsala, Sweden, January 21, 2019. Mattias Bergqvist, Biovica, is invited to give an oral presentation at the 14th Annual Biomarkers Congress 21-22 February 2019, Manchester, UK.

At the conference Mattias will address how liquid biomarkers can constitute novel ways to more effective evaluation of oncology drugs in development. Enhanced evaluation of drug efficacy by new assays such as DiviTum® can save time & cost and provide key information during preclinical and clinical trials, with the aim to bring new drugs to the market faster with a higher probability of regulatory success. DiviTum® measures cell proliferation and offers a new solution for measuring effects of drugs that inhibit the cell cycle – like the new CDK4/6 inhibitors and many other new promising compounds.

The Biomarker Congress includes presentations, case studies, novel technologies and panel discussions focused on the opportunities and challenges of biomarker development.

“This is a great opportunity to interact with Biovica’s target audience and present the possibilities of DiviTum® to key people in the industry. I look forward to present the unique study results of DiviTum® as a liquid biomarker for fast evaluation of drugs that inhibit the cell cycle. It’s great to be invited again to present at the congress on the highly interesting and actual topic of liquid biomarkers in oncology drug development and clinical validation”, says Mattias Bergqvist, Clinical Development Director at Biovica.
