NKI, Agendia and MD Anderson collaborate for colorectal cancer research

April 15, 2017

In addition to a better understanding of the individual biology, this collaboration will allow an independent validation of ColoPrint(R), Agendia's colon cancer recurrence test. Agendia is currently developing ColoPrint(R), which works by identifying Stage II colon cancer patients who are either at low risk or at high risk of experiencing a disease recurrence. As demonstrated in previous validation studies for Agendia's currently marketed products, ColoPrint(R), when combined with clinical parameters, has the potential to provide clinicians with a more reliable means to assist them in treatment decision-making for patients with Stage II colon cancer.

"The unique structure of this consortium makes possible the rapid translation of results from research and discovery to clinical setting that benefits patients sooner," said Scott Kopetz, MD, PhD, principal investigator of this research consortium and Assistant Professor in the Department of Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology at MD Anderson.
