Moffitt Cancer Center Announces Growing Interest in Recently Launched Prognostic Test for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Date:4/23/2010

TAMPA, Fla., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Moffitt Cancer Center announces steadily growing interest in the ERCC1 Analysis, the first test developed for selecting chemotherapy for Non Small Lung Cancer patients.  Each year, more than 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with lung cancer.

The ERCC1 Analysis measures ERCC1 levels in cells to predict response to cisplatin-based chemotherapy.   The correlation between ERCC1 levels and therapy response was discovered at Moffitt Cancer Center and exclusively licensed to Genzyme Corporation in November of 2007.  Genzyme Genetics, a business unit of Genzyme Corporation, officially launched the ERCC1 Analysis on May 1, 2009.

Several studies(1-6) have shown that evaluating the expression levels of excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1) may help physicians identify patients that may benefit from platinum-based chemotherapy - currently considered the standard of care in advanced NSCLC.  Specifically, low expression levels of ERCC1 have been related to a better response and survival benefit from adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy.  

"We are very pleased that many medical oncologists have begun utilizing this lung cancer test to better identify chemotherapy for non small cell lung cancer patients," said Jarett Rieger, Director of the Office of Technology Management and Licensing at Moffitt. "This test is an example of personalized medicine emanating from Moffitt Cancer Center, and as a result of our licensing partnership with Genyzme this test can now benefit lung cancer patients."

"The ERCC1 test complements our growing menu of personalized tests that predict response to treatment in NSCLC," said '/>"/>
