Korean Patent Office Grants New Patent Covering PathMAP® Functional Signaling Profile Technology

“Compositions and Methods for Prediction of Drug Sensitivity, Resistance, and Disease Progression” (KR10-1977875) for PathMAP® Functional Signaling Profile technology

Sunday, February 23, 2020

“PathMAP Functional Signaling Profiles are highly predictive of individual solid tumor responses to targeted therapies and combinations because they are based on the dynamic, predictive signaling information available only from live cells,” said Jerry Parrott, President and CEO, BioMarker Strategies.

PathMAP Functional Signaling Profiles are made possible by the Company’s proprietary SnapPath® Cancer Diagnostics System, which was developed specifically to enable predictive tests to guide targeted drug development and treatment selection for patients with solid tumor cancers. SnapPath is the only diagnostics system that can generate purified populations of live solid tumor cells from live, unfixed samples in an automated and standardized manner. The system preserves the molecular integrity of these living cells for ex vivo exposure to targeted therapies on the SnapPath System. The Korean Patent Office previously granted a patent covering the Company’s SnapPath® Cancer Diagnostics System technology in 2018.

“Patents on both of our core technologies have now been gr

anted in the United States, Europe, Australia, Canada, Japan and Korea,” said Mr. Parrott. “These and other granted patents give us broad protection to advance our mission to enable the use of live cells to personalize drug development and treatment selection for patients with solid tumor cancers.”
