OncoDNA SA Company Profile

15:35 EDT 20th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

With the advent of new technologies, in the last four years, DNA sequencing has gone through a technological revolution which has completely changed the market. While in 2007 it still cost over 10 million euros to sequence a complete human genome (the first sequencing cost 3 billion dollars in 2003), in 2012 it cost only $4000 for complete sequencing - and very soon it will be possible to sequence a complete human genome for $1000.

OncoDNA's Vision
OncoDNA's vision is that in the near future every tumour will be systematically sequenced so as to get a molecular view of the genetic modifications in the tumour and hence provide personalised treatment. OncoDNA is the first company in Europe to provide personalised medicine in oncology based on the analysis of patient tumour DNA. Given the fact that this technological revolution will have a great effect on human health, OncoDNA's mission is to become Europe's top company providing medical innovations based on new technologies to the first potential market for this type of innovation, oncology.

OncoDNA, founded by a team of experts with many years’ experience in DNA sequencing and diagnostic analyses in oncology, benefits from over 60 years’ expertise in medical diagnostics. One founder shareholder is, a company owned by the Institute of Pathology and Genetics (IPG), the Belgian leader in genetic and pathological analyses, with a patient group coming from half the francophone hospitals in the country.

The other shareholders are captains of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, in particular, Jean Stéphenne, former president of GSK Biologicals (now GSK Vaccines), and François Blondel, former CEO of IBt, a leading brachytherapy company. The CEO of OncoDNA is Jean-Pol Detiffe, former CEO of DNAVision, a DNA sequencing company.


OncoDEEP, our 3 tier approach to deep DNA sequencing, enables us to find mutations in tumours which are actionable by targeted therapies.

OncoTRACE is our personalised or individualised biomarker approach for a sensitive way of monitoring your cancer. It also gives early response indicators for treatment choice.
