Pfizer Inc. announced today that the PROFILE 1007 study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating that XALKORI® (crizotinib) significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) when compared with pemetrexed or docetaxel, in previously treated patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PROFILE 1007 is the first randomized Phase 3 study in ALK-positive advanced NSCLC patients.
Brussels (Belgium) 27th August 2010 – DNAVision, Europe’s leading genetic analysis
service providers, is pleased to announce the acquisition beginning of August of an
additional Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencing platform. The new system will be ready for
service to customer early October, just a few months after the first HiSeq system has
successfully entered into operation. Due to the high cost-effectiveness and sequencing
output, DNAVision uses the HiSeq 2000 systems mainly for human genome sequencing.
Brussels (Belgium) 17th May 2010 – DNAVision, one of Europe’s leading genetic analysis service providers, is pleased to announce the purchase of Illumina’s new HiScanSQ™ microarray and next-generation sequencing platform, which has officially been launched one month ago.
Illumina’s latest system will be installed in Gosselies’ facility and implemented in the highest quality certified environment (GMP, GLP, CLIA, CAP, ISO17025).
