OGT presents prostate cancer data

Oxford Gene Technology, provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, is discussing recent developments in biomarker discovery at this year’s CHI International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference (Tri-Con) in San Francisco, USA (23-25th February).

As well as presenting its genomic and proteomic diagnostic biomarker services at Tri-Con booth 626, OGT gave a talk at the CHI Early Oncology Partnering Showcase immediately before the Tri-Con event. The talk, entitled “Development of a panel of biomarkers for improved detection of prostate cancer”, was presented by OGT’s head of Business Development Biomarker Discovery, Will Colón. It described the use of OGT’s unique “functional protein” array platform to identify a panel of autoantibody biomarkers that can detect prostate cancer with greater sensitivity and specificity than current tests. OGT has also produced a new brochure outlining the benefits of its diagnostic biomarker technology, which is available at the OGT booth, together with OGT representatives, who are on hand for more in-depth discussion.
