Positive results with DiviTum® from new Pfizer study presented at the AACR congress
Uppsala, Sweden, 2018-04-17, New results from a Pfizer study on Ibrance® (palbociclib, Pfizer) of women with metastatic breast cancer demonstrate that DiviTum can provide fast evaluation of biologic effect demonstrating CDK 4/6 inhibition.
The study, presented at the ongoing AACR congress in Chicago, concluded that using DiviTum to measure cell proliferation in blood samples could potentially be used to assess cell cycle modulation by Ibrance®.
“We are pleased that DiviTum is included by Pfizer in their clinical development of Ibrance®. These positive results are in line with previously presented DiviTum data evaluating biologic effect of demonstrating CDK 4/6 inhibition in connection with treatment of breast cancer. The results take us yet another step closer to our vision of enabling the best possible treatment for cancer patients from day one” says Anders Rylander, CEO Biovica.
