BD's Progress in Molecular Markers

Having already collaborated with Millennium Pharmaceuticals to find marker candidates for its molecular oncology program, BD is now tapping TriPath Imaging to help build an imaging system to analyze the markers. Its strategy of relying on partners means it has to give up some profits, but BD is confident that the results will yield a value high enough to make the program economically feasible. It's a model that other companies are likely to emulate as they move into molecular diagnostics.

Vysis Preps For Prime Time

Tiny Vysis scored big this spring, winning the backing of two major therapeutic and diagnostic companies for its products. But is its core technology ready for prime time?

A FISH on the Line

Vysis Inc., which is attempting to penetrate the market with its FISH DNA probe technology, got a boost in May when it announced a collaboration with Genentech Inc. to couple the FISH breast cancer test with Genentech's drug, Herceptin. Vysis hopes the deal will showcase FISH technology and attract other drug developers as partners. Genentech, meanwhile, needs such a test to better screen one class of patients to determine their suitability for treatment with Herceptin, in light of controversy over how accurate the existing IHC diagnostic test is in determining their Her2 status.
