The release noted that the cancer marker
RECAF(TM) has emerged as a potential biomarker that may be useful in the development of new cancer diagnostics tests.
In the future, the company intends to expand the test menu to offer among others, fertility, anemia, infectious disease diagnostic, and cancer marker
A 95% specificity value is generally accepted as high for a cancer marker
Gold's life work and the importance of this new cancer marker
Under the agreement, in vitro diagnostics leader DakoCytomation receives a worldwide license for commercial use of a Northwest Biotherapeutics antibody that recognizes the key prostate cancer marker
, Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen, or PSMA.
After the first four months of chemotherapy, my cancer marker
was in the normal range.
We will design, engineer and optimize highly specific biomolecular nanodevices that undergo binding-induced conformational changes upon target binding and, in doing so, signal the presence of the cancer marker
Even if it does not, it could provide doctors with a useful new cancer marker
To help to understand why this is, my laboratory has recently solved the structure of a T-cell protein molecule interacting with a skin cancer marker
This highlights the importance of an inexpensive, reliable cancer marker
test and monitoring tool which BioCurex believes could be fulfilled by its RECAF blood test.
Successful completion of this financing will provide us with capital to continue our development efforts, pursue regulatory approvals and commercialization of the point-of-care rapid test format of our RECAF(TM) cancer marker
testing technology, and to commence marketing our other test formats in sectors where regulatory approvals are not required.
In a more recent study evaluating an ovarian cancer marker
panel that included leptin, prolactin, osteopontin, IGF-II, macrophage migration inhibitory factor, and CA 125, only CA 125, osteopontin, and IGF-II levels differed significantly between ovarian cancer patients and controls with benign ovarian disease (Anticancer Res.
