MDNA Life Sciences and University of Oxford to Collaborate to Develop Mitochondrial Biomarker Blood-Based Diagnostic for Endometriosis

MDNA Life Sciences Inc. announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with the University of Oxford to further the development and validation of MDNA's non-invasive blood-based test for endometriosis. The study will use MDNA's proprietary Mitomic Technology to isolate mitochondrial biomarkers circulating in blood plasma that have the potential to accurately distinguish between women with and without endometriosis. The endometriosis test aims to provide the medical community with a much-needed tool in the management of endometriosis to close the average 9-year gap between symptom onset and diagnosis, and accelerate the pathway to treatment. Following the successful outcome of this clinical study, launch of the test is planned for 2017. The collaboration with the University of Oxford will be facilitated by Professor Christian Becker, and Professor Krina Zondervan, co-Directors of the Endometriosis Care and Research (CaRe) Centre which aims to find novel diagnostic approaches and identify innovative, more focused therapies for endometriosis. MDNA's diagnostic tests are developed using its proprietary Mitomic Technology platform which exploits the unique biological characteristics of mitochondrial DNA making it a highly attractive and effective system for biomarker discovery, early disease detection, monitoring, risk assessment and therapeutic targeting. This innovative platform has led to the discovery of numerous novel and proprietary biomarkers for a multitude of cancers and other diseases.
