About the Drug Response Predictor – DRP® Companion Diagnostic
Oncology Venture uses its drug-specific DRP® to select patients who, based on the genetic signature of their cancer, have a high likelihood of responding to the specific drug. By screening patients before treatment, the response rate can be significantly increased. The DRP® method is based on the comparison of susceptible and resistant human cancer cell lines, including the genomic information of the cell lines combined with the clinical biology of the tumor and the results of previous clinical trials. The DRP® is based on messenger RNA from patient biopsies. DRP® has been proven to provide a statistically significant prediction of the clinical outcome of drug treatment in cancer patients in nearly 40 clinical studies that have been reviewed, including an ongoing prospective Phase 2 trial. The DRP® platform can be used in all types of cancer and is patented for more than 70 cancer drugs in the United States
