ANGLE plc Signs Research Agreement with the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University

ANGLE plc has signed a research agreement with the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia to investigate the clinical use of the Parsortix system in metastatic breast cancer patients. The research collaboration will be led by Dr. Massimo Cristofanilli, an internationally renowned breast cancer researcher and clinician, and Director of the Jefferson Breast Care Center at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (SKCC) and Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals. Dr. Cristofanilli's research aims to improve personalised medicine for breast cancer patients, focusing on molecular targeted agents, biomarkers and gene therapies. Dr. Cristofanilli has been an acknowledged leader in the CTC field since 2004, when his study on CTCs was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. His study found CTCs to be a predictor of progression-free survival and overall survival in metastatic breast cancer patients, and was one of the first major studies on CTCs. Dr. Cristofanilli and his team are particularly interested in ANGLE's Parsortix system for CTCs because it is antibody independent and offers easy harvesting of CTCs for molecular analysis, which may help guide treatment plans.
