Collaboration led by ImmunID Awarded Innovate UK Grant

ImmunID, the immune companion diagnostics for precision medicine company, today announced it has been awarded Small Business Research Initiative funding1 by Innovate UK, UK’s innovation agency, to advance its ImmunTraCkeR® assay for therapeutic response prediction. The project aims at validating ImmunID’s clinical results with ImmunTraCkeR® through a clinical study on 40 metastatic melanoma patients from the UK, treated with immunotherapy. It also includes a medico-economic study to measure the health economic benefits for the National Health Service (NHS), the UK healthcare system. The National Institute for Health Research Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative Leeds (NIHR DEC Leeds) and the Precision Medicine Catapult are collaborating on the project. The Catapult’s Centres of Excellence in Leeds and Glasgow will provide health-informatic and data-analytic support to mine local and national health records, providing real world NHS data for the economic modelling. Ultimately, ImmunTraCkeR® may be used as an immune companion diagnostic to immune checkpoint agents and help doctors make informed decision regarding the treatment of melanoma, therefore improving patient benefit whilst saving unnecessary healthcare costs.
