DiaTech Oncology files for patent

Brentwood-based lab company DiaTech Oncology said today it's filed for a drug discovery patent for its Microculture Kinetic (MiCK) assay, a drug validation test that measures the timing and amount of cell death in tumor cells caused by chemotherapy or anticancer drugs:
Pharmaceutical companies can then concentrate development resources on drugs that are most active against tumor cells, and can also identify which patients might respond best to the experimental chemotherapy agents in clinical trials. Because of this unique capability the MiCK assay can be a valuable tool in the field of Drug Discovery by reducing the costs associated with validation studies and the time required to obtain FDA approval for marketing.
