BostonGene Corporation (BostonGene), a biomedical software company focused on defining optimal precision medicine-based therapies for cancer patients, and NEC Corporation (NEC; 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 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 similar diagnosis, simultaneously analyzing tumor and tumor microenvironment activity. The solution will identify all significant somatic alterations, protein expression, 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.“

“We are partnering with BostonGene because of their advanced patient analysis services,” said Osamu Fujikawa, Senior Vice President at NEC Corporation. “The strategic collaboration with BostonGene is reflective of our mission to improve cancer patient outcomes. BostonGene’s innovative data analytics platform combined with NEC’s cutting-edge AI technology gives us the tools needed to focus on advancing treatment options for cancer patients.”
