Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to Use Exosome Diagnostics Exosome RNA Biofluid Kits in Neo-Natal Setting and Cancer for Development of Personalized Medicine Diagnostics
Date:9/30/2013

NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Exosome Diagnostics today announced that it has selected Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to participate in an early technology access program for use of exosome RNA biofluid extraction kits for biomarker discovery in neo-natal and other disease settings.  

"The ability to monitor patients, particularly extreme premature infants, using real-time biofluid based genetics tests, may provide critical information which is currently unavailable, said Charles F. Simmons, M.D., professor and chair of Cedars-Sinai's Department of Pediatrics. "We have been interested in exosome biology as a tool for diagnostic development, and are pleased to be selected to have access for our neonatal patients to this novel technology for biomarker discovery."

James McCullough, chief executive officer of Exosome Diagnostics said, "Partnering with clinical leaders such as Dr. Simmons and his team at Cedars-Sinai's Maxine Dunitz Children's Health Center is a high priority as we move to validate our blood RNA kits where precision monitoring of gene expressions is important to understanding effectiveness of drug therapy."

Dolores Di Vizio, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of Surgery and an expert on blood-based biomarkers in microvesicles, who works with Vincent Funari, Ph.D., director of the Cedars-Sinai genomics core commented, "Having the opportunity to join with Dr. Simmons' initiative and apply the Exosome Diagnostics kit technology for biomarker discovery and next generation sequencing applications in clinical oncology samples will facilitate our efforts toward Precision Medicine and tailored therapy for prostate cancer. They will work together and in close collaboration with Dr. Michael Freeman, PhD, director of the Cancer Biology Program at the S
