Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Enters into an Agreement with Abbott for the Development of an in Vitro Companion Diagnostic Test
May 13 14
Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with Abbott for the development of an in vitro companion diagnostic test for use in Idera’s clinical development programs to treat certain genetically defined forms of B-cell lymphoma with IMO-8400. Under the agreement, Abbott will develop a test utilizing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology to identify the presence of the MYD88 L265P oncogenic mutation in tumor biopsy samples with high sensitivity and specificity. This mutation, which can be identified in approximately 90% of patients with Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia and approximately 30% of patients with the ABC sub-type of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, plays a key role in activating the Toll-like receptor (TLR) pathways targeted by Idera’s lead drug candidate, IMO-8400.
