Yale ovarian cancer detection technology licensed in China by SurExam

New Haven, Conn. -- Yale University Office of Cooperative Research today announced that it has granted an exclusive license agreement with the Chinese company SurExam Life Science & Technology (Shenzhen) Co. for the commercialization of the university's blood testing technology for epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC).

In the United States, EOC is the fourth most common cancer in women and the leading cause of gynecologic cancer death. EOC affects approximately 25,000 women each year, and more than 16,000 will die from the disease.

SurExam is a Chinese Bio-Pharmaceutical company focusing on the research, development and promotion of products related to early cancer detection. The company's target is to become the leading company in China in the field of diagnostic industry.

The Yale technology for EOC detection is based on analysis of a collection of known serum proteins associated with cancer biology. Each protein marker is assayed using a routine ELISA assay, then the panel of results is scored.

"SurExam is delighted to license the Yale technology for early detection of ovarian cancer in China -- and to help to improve the health of women in our country," said Dr. Jiasen Xu, CEO of SurExam. "As a Chinese scientist trained at Yale, I am honored that SurExam was chosen as the company to develop and commercialize Yale's intellectual property in my motherland. I hope SurExam's work will facilitate future collaboration between Yale and Chinese biotechnology companies."

SurExam is a privately held company funded by private capital. The founders include scientists trained at Yale and other international institutions. The company's scientific team is engaged in cutting-edge cancer research around the world, including universities in USA and China, according to CEO Xu.
