It added that his expertise is therefore highly relevant to ANGLE's continuing development of its ParsortixTM system as the liquid biopsy platform of choice for harvesting and analysing circulating tumour cells and other rare cells from blood as a means of diagnosing and monitoring disease.

The group said Khoury is a tenured Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas and is the Executive Director of the MD Anderson Cancer Network for the Division of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and the Director of the MD Anderson Institutional Immunohistochemistry Laboratory.

ANGLE founder and chief executive, Andrew Newland, commented: "Our Parsortix system has been shown to enable the efficient harvesting of circulating cancer cells and other rare cells in patient blood.

“Dr Khoury's expertise in interpreting these cells and their relevance to a patient's condition, and potentially their prognosis and treatment, is expected to open up new possibilities for the use of Parsortix system. “
