BostonGene and NEC Collaborate to Analyze Cancer Patients in Clinical Trials
Integrated Genomic and Transcriptomic Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Data to Reveal Cellular Content of Tumor Microenvironment

TOKYO, July 21, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - BostonGene Corporation (BostonGene), a biomedical software company focused on defining optimal precision medicine-based therapies for cancer patients, and NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701), a leader in IT and network technologies, today announced a collaboration to conduct cancer patient analysis treated under NEC's clinical trials. This collaboration brings together NEC's artificial intelligence (AI)-driven approach to cancer immunotherapy with BostonGene's sophisticated analytical tools.

Under the terms of the collaboration agreement, BostonGene will perform tumor molecular profiling and microenvironment analysis for cancer patients identified in trials by NEC and or NEC affiliates across cancer types and disease stages. The collaboration aims to provide a molecular characterization of patient tumors for improvement of treatment response, both in clinical trial settings and beyond.

BostonGene's solution integrates next-generation sequencing (NGS) obtained from a patient's tumor with a reference cohort of data from patients with a similar diagnoses, simultaneously analyzing tumor and tumor microenvironment activity. The solution will identify all significant somatic alterations, protein expression, the activity of tumor-promoting and suppressing processes, tumor microenvironment cellular composition, tumor heterogeneity, tumor clonality, hereditary predisposition, viral infestation and pharmacogenomics among other molecular features.

"We are very excited to partner with NEC," said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO at BostonGene. "The collaboration between NEC and BostonGene demonstrates the combined commitment to delivering truly breakthrough therapies that identify personalized, effective treatments to dramatically improve patients' chances for survival and quality of life."
