Sanko Junyaku to Launch New DCP Diagnostic Test Kit for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)
 

Tokyo, June 21, 2004 (JCN) - Sanko Junyaku Co., Ltd., Fujirebio Inc., and Eisai Co., Ltd. announced that Sanko Junyaku will launch on August 3, 2004, Lumipulse Pivka-II Eisai, a test kit (in vitro diagnostics) to determine Des--Carboxy-Prothrombin, equal to and known as Pivka-II in Japan ("DCP") and a marker of HCC. The test kit will be used for Lumipulse, automatic chemiluminescent enzyme immunoassay system developed and marketed by Fujirebio.

This test kit was developed by Sanko Junyaku, Fujirebio, and Eisai under a joint research agreement, and was approved for manufacture and sales in Japan. Under a manufacturing and supply agreement and a cooperative sales agreement, this test kit will be manufactured by Fujirebio, distributed by Sanko Junyaku, and Eisai will cooperate with Sanko Junyaku in the promotion of this reagent.

The reagent for measuring Pivka-II has been widely used in HCC diagnosis because of its high specificity to HCC. Currently, Sanko Junyaku manufactures and markets the test kit for Pivka-II under the product names of Eitest Pivka-II and Picolumi Pivka-II. The new Pivka-II test kit, specially designed for Lumipulse, is expected to have greater ease of use and contribute to the improved benefits of patients.

Sanko Junyaku forecasts sales of 700 million yen for Lumipulse Pivka-II Eisai in fiscal year 2006.
