Miraca Life Sciences, Inc. Key Developments

Miraca Life Sciences Expands Therapeutic Drug Monitoring with Addition of First Biosimilar Inflectra®

Miraca Life Sciences has further expanded its InformTx™ therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) capabilities with the addition of testing for Inflectra® (infliximab-dyyb), which is the first biosimilar drug in the test offering. Since launching InformTx in June 2016, Miraca Life Sciences has expanded the service from four to now seven biologic drugs that treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In the United States, InformTx is the only TDM (with anti-drug antibodies) available for Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol), Stelara® (ustekinumab), and Simponi® (golimumab). The company also continues to offer TDM for Remicade® (infliximab), Humira® (adalimumab), and Entyvio® (vedolizumab). The InformTx report is unique in that it provides clinicians with quantitative test results, historical test result data, and guidance from the most up-to-date peer-reviewed scientific literature. Testing measures the level of Inflectra as well as patient-developed antibodies to Inflectra. Miraca Life Sciences uses laboratory-validated ELISA technology for InformTx TDM, and testing results are reported within five days.

These four biotherapy monitoring tests (Infliximab/Remicade®, Adalimumab/Humira®, Certolizumab/Cimzia® and Vedolizumab/Entyvio®) deal mainly with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
