Millennium Predictive's Outcome

Executive Summary

Millennium Pharmaceuticals' new collaboration with Roche Diagnostics to develop prognostic and therapeutic information products in rheumatoid arthritis is notable as being only the second molecular diagnostics discovery deal involving the delivery of targets to a large diagnostics company (the first being Millennium's Becton Dickinson deal in cancer). But the news behind the scenes is that Millennium has also quietly re-integrated two of the three programs in its Predictive Medicine subsidiary, setting the stage for the roll-out of a major, web-based personalized medical information play, most likely by year-end.
