BASEL, Switzerland, July 12, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Nilogen Oncosystems, a leading Oncology drug development Company, and Scailyte, a single cell AI biomarker discovery company, announced today a strategic partnership to increase the success rate of novel cancer therapies in the clinic, as well as to advance personalized cancer treatment.
This long-term strategic partnership aims at integrating Nilogen Oncosytems' proprietary 3D-EXplore Platform of fresh patient tumor tissue with Scailyte's AI Platform ScaiVision™ to develop a robust cutting-edge omics engine for personalized drug-tumor interactions to understand drug MoA and predict tumor response in patients for clinical trials enrichment.
The joint platform will unlock new paradigms in drug discovery and development thanks to Nilogen Oncosytems' unique 3D EXplore tumoroid technology retaining the intact tumor microenvironment, and the ability of ScaiVision™ to detect complex, ultra-sensitive, and predictive molecular signatures in biological samples.
"Nilogen Oncosystems' capability to generate omics and multi-modal data from each therapeutic option and for each patient is unique. This capability in combination with Scailyte's ability to unlock molecular insights with single-cell resolution creates an unprecedented level of personalized information and precision. This will not just change the way we discover and develop novel therapies, but more importantly, will save more lives," said Juana Lucia Flores-Candia, PhD, MBA, VP Strategy & Business Development at Scailyte.
"We are pleased to be working with Scailyte since I believe our integrated solutions will not only support our BioPharma clients for faster, data-driven decision-making throughout their drug development process, but will also allow us to advance precision medicine applications for the treatment of cancer patients," said Soner Altiok, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at Nilogen Oncosystems.
