BioReference Laboratories and Vanderbilt University Medical Center Collaborate on Genomics

OPKO Health Inc. announced a collaboration among its subsidiary, BioReference Laboratories Inc. the Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) to leverage large scale genomics testing for optimal cancer care. Each of the organizations has committed to providing its complementary expertise with the goal of introducing genomic testing that is cost effective and increases patient accessibility to the newest cancer therapies. VUMC is recognized nationally for clinical and management excellence by such organizations as U.S. News and World Report, Leapfrog, and Truven Top 100 Hospitals. VICC, a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, is a recognized leader in precision medicine with active clinical trials involving biomarker assessment. BioReference Laboratories, through its business units, GenPath Oncology and GeneDx, has extensive experience in next generation sequencing (NGS) in oncology. The first initiative in this multi-year collaboration is a 300+ gene NGS panel for solid tumors and hematologic malignancies that will be available in early 2016 for clinical care. The panel design was jointly developed by VICC/VUMC pathologists, oncologists, and cancer researchers and scientists at BioReference Laboratories. This NGS assay will target single nucleotide variants, insertions and deletions, copy number variants, and gene fusions specifically in genomic areas that are druggable. Through this collaboration, scientists are working on several other diagnostic assays to equip clinicians with the genetic knowledge they need to treat patients.
