Colorectal Cancer Testing

Very important AMGEN signs collaberation deal with Mgmt:

"Another potential meaningful near-term contributor to the Lab Services segment (as well as to the Diagnostic Tools segment) relates to the recently consummated agreement with Amgen (NasdaqGS:AMGN) whereby the two companies are collaborating on a KRAS an NRAS gene mutation assay kit to screen patients for colorectal cancer.  The RAScan test is currently available for research use only (RUO) in the U.S. (which will run through Lab Svcs) and for clinical use in Europe - which could help accelerate instrument placements (through Menarini) as well as increase consumables sales"

CRC RAScan™ is a new mutation detection test designed to screen for selected KRAS and NRAS mutations (collectively referred to as “RAS mutations”), in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC).The identification of these RAS mutations can give physicians important clinical information to help them make better treatment decisions for their mCRC patients.

KRAS and NRAS are part of the RAS family of genes which encode proteins involved in transmitting signals within cells. When Ras proteins are “switched on” by incoming signals, other genes involved in cell growth, differentiation, and survival are activated. Mutations in KRAS, NRAS and other related genes can lead to Ras proteins becoming permanently activated, causing overactive signaling even in the absence of incoming signals, and can lead to the uncontrolled cell growth that characterizes cancer. Mutations that permanently activate Ras proteins are found in ~25% of human tumors and up to 90% of certain cancers. About 40% of colorectal tumors carry KRAS gene mutations and these mutations have been associated with poor response to EGFR antagonists such as cetuximab and panitumumab. Therefore KRAS mutation status can be used to determine whether or not a patient with colorectal cancer will respond to anti-EGFR therapy.

The CRC RAScan test can identify mCRC patients who have RAS mutations at levels that cannot be detected using traditional Sanger Sequencing methods.

CRC RAScan™ for Colorectal Cancer Tumor Testing is available immediately from Transgenomic’s CLIA-certified laboratory in the United States. For more information on this test, click here.

CRC RAScan Mutation Detection Kits will soon be available in the U.S for research use only. CRC RAScan Mutation Detection Kits include the following kits based on Transgenomic's proprietary SURVEYOR® Nuclease technology:

  • KRAS Exon 2
  • KRAS Exons 3 & 4
  • NRAS Exons 2, 3 & 4

Zacks analyst ~ OUR 2013 OUTLOOK~

We've again made some updates to our model.  We now model 2013 revenue of $32.4 million, implying growth of 3% from 2012.  We look for Laboratory Services and Instruments to generate revenue of $20.0 million (+4%) and $12.4 million (+2%), respectively.  We think net income and EPS come in at ($12.7) million and ($0.14).


New Analyses Identify Predictive Biomarkers For Vectibix® (Panitumumab) In Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

Biomarker Analysis From Phase 3 PRIME ('203) Study and Phase 2 PEAK ('509) Study Link Additional RAS Gene Mutations to Vectibix Clinical Response

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced results from three analyses of Vectibix® (panitumumab) in combination with FOLFOX, an oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy regimen, as a first-line treatment for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). These analyses include the description of new predictive biomarkers of clinical response to Vectibix, activating mutations in KRAS (beyond exon 2) and mutations in NRAS, collectively referred to as RAS.

"Amgen helped establish KRAS gene mutation as a biomarker for lack of response to anti-EGFR treatment," said Sean E. Harper, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen. "The identification of new biomarkers may further help to identify appropriate patients with this incurable disease for such treatment."
