Millipore licenses AGR2 mAb

Australian healthcare company, HealthLinx has signed a commercial agreement to license its AGR2 monoclonal antibody (mAb) to Millipore. The worldwide non-exclusive license agreement allows Millipore to market and sell the monoclonal antibody for research purposes only, with upfront fees and royalties to flow back to HealthLinx.

The second, multi-center, multi-national trial for HealthLinx’s OvPlex ovarian cancer diagnostic blood test includes the testing of two additional biomarkers, one of these being the recently identified AGR2. It is anticipated that the inclusion of AGR2 in the multi-marker OvPlex panel will increase its diagnostic performance, and the ability to identify early stage cancers, and may aid in discriminating benign masses from cancer.
