Johns Hopkins Researchers Present Advances In Prostate Cancer Program At The Annual Meeting Of The American Urological Association
\"We are pleased with the progress of our ongoing collaborative prostate cancer program with Johns Hopkins. These findings address a critical aspect of the management of prostate cancer, as the ability to predict recurrence can help physicians and patients understand better the aggressiveness of disease,\" said Gail S. Page, President and CEO of Ciphergen. \"The discovery of PCI using Ciphergen\'s technology demonstrates its ability to identify markers directly related to the disease process, since PCI is present in seminal fluid and directly interacts with PSA. Further validation is underway.\"
Ciphergen is dedicated to translating protein biomarkers and panels of biomarkers into protein molecular diagnostic tests that improve patient care. We are also focused on providing collaborative R&D services through our Biomarker Discovery Center(R) laboratories for biomarker discovery for new diagnostic tests as well as pharmacoproteomic services for improved drug toxicology, efficacy and theranostic assays. Ciphergen develops, manufactures and markets a family of ProteinChip(R) Systems and services for clinical, research and process proteomics applications. ProteinChip Systems enable protein discovery, validation, identification and assay development to provide researchers with predictive, multi-marker assay capabilities and a better understanding of biological function at the protein level.
