Verici Dx plc, a US-based developer of advanced clinical diagnostics for organ transplant, has signed an exclusive global licensing agreement with American firm Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, to further develop an assay for pre-transplant prognostic testing for risk of early kidney rejection.

The exclusive license grants Thermo Fisher the rights to develop and offer an assay for pre-transplant risk assessment as a Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) in its CLIA laboratory in the US, as well as worldwide rights.

The aim is to develop a test that can risk stratify patients based on their likely immune response to a transplanted kidney and, as a result, enable clinicians to make more informed decisions about post-transplant and immunosuppressive management.

Commenting on the agreement, Sara Barrington, CEO of Verici Dx said, “By collaborating with Thermo Fisher, we believe we can accelerate the development of our technology, helping ensure that it reaches those who need it the most.”

Nicole Brockway, President, Transplant Diagnostics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, said, “There is a significant need for effective tests that can identify the risk of transplant rejection early to help inform treatment decisions. Our hope is that this licensing agreement will allow us to develop a new prognostic assay that will expand and strengthen our portfolio of transplant testing solutions."
