BioTime, Inc. and OncoCyte Corporation Announce Positive Interim Results from Lung Cancer Study

BioTime, Inc. and OncoCyte Corporation have announced positive interim clinical results demonstrating the high level of observed sensitivity and specificity in the assayed samples of a simple blood-based test designed for the early detection of lung cancer. The large, prospective clinical study was conducted by The Wistar Institute. The test was developed in the laboratory of Louise Showe, PhD, professor in the Molecular and Cellular Oncogenesis program of The Wistar Institute's NCI-designated cancer center. As part of the study, clinical investigators used a simple collection system that is approved by the FDA to prepare over 600 peripheral blood samples from patients determined to be at high risk for developing lung cancer based on age and smoking history. These patients were undergoing either low-dose computed tomography (CT) scanning for lung cancer or were recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Wistar scientists then assessed the expression of messenger RNA and micro RNA in the initial training set of 242 samples and developed a classifier of 145 markers (125 mRNAs plus 20 micro RNAs) that most accurately distinguished patients with malignant nodules from those with benign or no findings. The classifier was then assessed in an independent test set of 103 samples. Performance of the classifier was evaluated using several criteria, including Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) area under the curve (AUC) analysis, and yielded an AUC of 0.88 (sensitivity of 76% with a specificity of 88%) in the test set. Analysis of the full patient sample set is near completion. In October 2013, OncoCyte entered into a Sponsored Research Agreement with The Wistar Institute to identify, develop and test potential lung cancer biomarkers collaboratively with Dr. Showe's laboratory. OncoCyte has exercised options to obtain exclusive licenses to any inventions, discoveries or technology developed in the course of the collaborative research, including the technology presented and expects to negotiate definitive license agreements with Wistar.
