Posted Jul 22 2010 5:00pm
Description of Invention: Available for licensing is software that can provide prognostic information for different diseases and in particular for cancer. The software can determine whether a particular genotype has a significant association with survival time for an individual receiving treatment. For example, it can determine if a specific genetic pattern is associated with an increased or decreased time to recurrence of a particular type of cancer for patients on a given treatment regimen.
Applications in clinical research:
Studying relationship between genotypes and survival times
Evaluation of treatment regimens
Applications in drug discovery programs
The invention has been fully developed.
The software will be readily available in executable form if so requested.
