Johns Hopkins University Key Developments

Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Enters into Worldwide License Agreement with the Johns Hopkins University

Tokai Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Johns Hopkins University related to the development of a companion diagnostic to determine the AR-V7 status of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) for use with the Company’s lead product, galeterone, which is in development for the treatment of AR-V7 positive metastatic CRPC. Under the agreement, the Company has obtained an exclusive, worldwide license from the Johns Hopkins University to patent applications and know-how covering an assay that has been used to determine the AR-V7 status of prostate cancer patients. AR-V7 positive prostate tumors express a truncated form of the androgen receptor (AR).

Good Start Genetics Announces Exclusive License Agreement with Johns Hopkins University for Key Assets in Preimplantion Genetic Screening

Good Start Genetics Inc. announced that it has entered into an exclusive license agreement with Johns Hopkins University (JHU) for FAST-SeqS, Fast Aneuploidy Screening Test-Sequencing System, invented by Drs. Bert Vogelstein, Ken Kinzler, Isaac Kinde, and Nickolas Papadopoulos of JHU. FAST-SeqS enables the screening of embryos for chromosome abnormalities prior to implantation in an in vitro fertilization setting. This practice, called preimplantation genetic screening, or PGS, increases the potential of transferring an embryo with the correct number of chromosomes and may ultimately increase pregnancy rates. FAST-SeqS may also have applications well beyond aneuploidy screening. FAST-SeqS is a simple, efficient method to count the number of chromosomes in an embryo. The technology uses a single primer pair to select and amplify distinct sections of the genome that occur on every chromosome. Existing PGS methods assess chromosome copy number, but are costly and often require lengthy turnarounds for results. The novel approach developed by Johns Hopkins researchers may help reduce costs associated with PGS and thereby make this testing more accessible to a wider range of patients. Over the past year, Good Start Genetics has developed the FAST-SeqS technology towards the development of a proprietary PGS assay.
