Lantern Phrama Selects REPROCELL Inc., for Drug Screening and Biomarker Discovery Services


BELTSVILLE, Md., Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- REPROCELL Inc. a stem cell and drug discovery company has announced today that they have been selected by Lantern Pharma to provided preclinical screening and drug sensitivity for its portfolio of oncology drugs. The collaboration is designed to obtain millions of data points using panels of unique and genetically edited cell lines from various tumors. The data generated from these studies will help Lantern's AI platform to generate the biological and genetic basis for drug positioning and maximum drug efficacy. Lantern believes this will help bring oncology therapies to patients more efficiently and affordably than traditional R&D efforts.

These studies will help demonstrate the tremendous potential for patient stratification for cancer therapies. Following the acquisition of data on cell line panels, REPROCELL and Lantern will continue to develop subsequent models including 3D, organoid, and PDX models in the drugs journey from preclinical to clinical stages.

"We are pleased to announce this partnership with Lantern, a relationship we believe will generate new methodologies based on our mutual abilities. We believe that our models using 3D technology will fuel innovation leveraging highly advanced cell biology data related to drug development," said Rama Modali, CEO of REPROCELL USA.
