Predicine and CloudHealth to Offer Blood-Based Lung and Prostate Cancer Tests in China

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) - Predicine, Inc. and CloudHealth Genomics Ltd announced today at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2016 meeting, to offer Predicine's liquid biopsy tests to patients with lung (PrediSeq-Lung) or prostate (PrediSeq-Prostate) cancer in China.

Lung cancer is the number one cause of mortality in China. Prostate cancer on the other hand is the fastest growing cancer type in China and the most common and second leading cause of cancer death in the western world. Earlier this year, Dr. Winston Patrick Kuo, President of Predicine, introduced their PrediSeq-Lung liquid biopsy test at the 23rd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference, which took place in San Francisco. A month later, Predicine presented data introducing PrediSeq-Prostate, the world's first liquid biospy NGS test for precision medicine in prostate cancer, at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting in New Orleans. Both tests are based on Predicine's patented NGS technology, detecting genetic alterations (mutations, copy number, indel, rearrgangement and splice variants) in circulation.

"We are committed to developing the first- and best-in-class non-invasive NGS-based cancer tests to enable personalized cancer care and global drug development," said Dr. Shidong Jia, Founder and CEO of Predicine. "We are glad to work with industry leaders like CloudHealth so as to serve more patients in China in a timely manner," Dr. Jia added. Predicine plans to launch additional tests for major cancer types in China later this year.

The tests have been rigorously validated and are now being adopted by leading pharmaceutical companies in the US and China. "The recognition of PrediSeq cancer tests by top-notch pharmaceutical companies is a testament of the science and quality behind Predicine," Dr. Jason Jin, CEO and Co-founder of CloudHealth, said in a statement. "We are excited to move forward with Predicine to offer cancer patients and drug development companies instant access to the state-of-the-art liquid biopsy technology," Dr. Jin added.
