Agendia and Paige Announce Landmark Strategic Partnership to Revolutionize Treatment Planning in Breast Cancer

November 18, 2020

Agendia, Inc., a world leader in precision oncology for breast cancer, and Paige, a global leader in AI-based digital diagnostics, today announced a first of its kind strategic partnership that will redefine precision oncology.

The partnership will enable co-development of treatment planning tools that integrate the cloud-based Paige Platform with genomic information from Agendia’s proprietary MammaPrint® and BluePrint® diagnostic tests for patients with breast cancer. These new products will enable faster access to predictive and prognostic information along the entire continuum of care, from diagnosis and early intervention to metastatic treatment planning.

“Paige’s digital pathology platform is truly transformational for oncology and will catapult diagnostics forward as a whole. This partnership defines the democratization of treatment planning tools by accelerating access to these tests and the essential insights they provide for more patients globally,” said Mark Straley, Chief Executive Officer of Agendia. “Our goal is to provide same-day turnaround in most cases, enable earlier intervention, preserve limited biopsy or surgical tissue specimens, and extend key benefits to physicians and their patients with access to testing in countries where tissue ‘send out’ is not allowed. Whether a patient is in Manhattan or Mumbai, the ability to get real-time and accurate results from Agendia’s MammaPrint and BluePrint tests will improve how we are treating breast cancer today.”

The initial focus of the collaboration will be the development of digital tests for early treatment planning where genomic testing has played an essential role in determining recurrence risk and tumor biology as doctors and their patients make decisions about the path ahead. This can be especially important for patients with operable breast cancer. Beyond early intervention, AI-derived biomarkers will be used to augment genomic testing in the metastatic setting where a multitude of therapeutic options can add to the complexity of treatment planning.

“As the first company to receive FDA clearance, FDA breakthrough designation and two CE marks for digital and computational pathology products, Paige is delivering next-generation digital diagnostics that redefine how we approach cancer care,” said Leo Grady, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Paige. “By combining our unique capabilities with Agendia’s leadership in breast cancer, we believe this innovative partnership can achieve our shared goal of transforming clear and actionable information into precision treatment for better patient outcomes. It will be the first of many AI-based diagnostic tests to come.”
