Our study provides the first clinical evidence of using DiviTum for measuring TK1 activity for early evaluation of the effect of palbociclib treatment in breast cancer. The results are very promising and support future studies of DiviTum to evaluate and identify patients for response to CDK 4/6 inhibitors
Dr Cynthia Ma, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, US
These results correlating DiviTum to palbociclib efficacy are highly promising since there is no other blood based biomarker available for evaluating CDK 4/6 inhibitor efficacy today. CDK 4/6 inhibitors are very effective but also costly and far from all patients respond. It is therefore very important to provide new biomarkers in order to enable best possible treatments for patients and cost effectiveness for payers. These results support our aim to provide DiviTum as a standard tool for evaluating treatments in metastatic breast- and other cancers.
Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica
It is very important to know if a therapy is effective or not. The results provide evidence for using DiviTum to give accurate prognosis and guidance regarding therapy efficacy in patients with pancreatic tumors. Our study is the first to demonstrate that a blood based marker like DiviTum can give important prognostic information to clinicians treating pancreatic cancer and become a tool for early evaluation of neoadjuvant therapy efficacy and treatment options. Additionally despite the fact that CA 19-9 is still the gold standard biomarker in pancreatic cancer, for patients with low CA 19-9 or CA 19-9 non-secretors, the S-TK assay could be an alternative screening marker.
Dr Klaus Felix, Ph.D, Department of General Surgery, University of Heidelberg
The results presented from our collaboration with Dr Felix at the University of Heidelberg demonstrates the utility of DiviTum for precise prognosis and therapy efficacy evaluation for patients with pancreatic cancer. This builds on already published data on other tumors and provides evidence beyond our extensive trial program in breast cancer, with the aim for DiviTum to become a standard tool for predicting outcome and early efficacy evaluation for patients with specific solid tumors.
Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica
he results demonstrate that already after just 1 month of treatment, DiviTum is a highly valuable marker for clinical use regarding accurate prognosis. Throughout the course of therapy DiviTum can provide clinical information for patients with metastatic breast cancer scheduled for 1st line systemic therapy
Lisa Rydén, Professor, Department of Surgery, Lund University
The study provides key documentation for DiviTum as a tool for putative evaluation of efficacy in a peripheral blood sample and we are delighted to publish these results in collaboration with Lund University. The study results contribute towards our objective of supplying DiviTum to oncologists as a standard tool for evaluating metastatic breast cancer treatment to improve patient outcome

Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica.
We are pleased that Lund University sees the value of DiviTum® and has selected to use it in the study. By participating in this study, we want to help more cancer patients get the best possible treatment earlier. With DiviTum® we want to contribute to much faster treatment efficacy evaluation than what is possible with current imaging methods
Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica
“To have Biovica in the SUBLYME project as partner is highly valuable since a non-invasive biomarker like DiviTum can be a significant advantage in the development and marketing of our SUMOi. We believe that DiviTum is a very important tool in the preclinical setting, getting the drug ready for clinical studies and bringing a competitive edge”
Alfred Nijkerk, CEO of UbiQ
“The SUBLYME project received high ranking and is a promising project that have the potential to bring an important drug complemented with a biomarker for cancer patients closer to approval. The inclusion of the DiviTum technology in the project is a good example of how Swedish biotech companies can bring great value to this type of research projects.”
Dr Peter Lindberg, Program Lead EUREKA/EUROSTAR at Vinnova
The results provide guidance for using DiviTum as a test to gain early information on the response to palbociclib. We look forward to including more patients in the study and providing more evidence for DiviTum as a noninvasive assay for patients treated with CDK4/6 inhibitors
Dr Geoffrey Shapiro, MD, PhD, Director, Early Drug Development Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
These results, adding to the results presented at SABCS in December 2016, furthers strengthens the evidence that DiviTum® can indicate response to CDK4/6 treatments. Now there is evidence from cell lines, animal models, patients with breast cancer and other solid tumors including lung cancer. Going forward, we’ll continue building solid evidence of the value DiviTum® can bring to patients and health care providers.
Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica
These key recruitments strengthen our management team, secure important positions for the upcoming company IPO, and lay the foundation for a successful market introduction of our DiviTum™ biomarker assay. DiviTum™ addresses a large unmet diagnostic need. Biovica will be able to provide great value for both patients and payers
