Pembrolizumab (anti-PDI) is the first cancer drug based on a predictive cancer marker
, rather than tumour type, to be approved by the US FDA.
In the case of a colon cancer marker
, evaluating whether chemotherapy is the right decision depends on the relative benefits and harms of chemotherapy.
After the first four months of chemotherapy, my cancer marker
was in the normal range.
2] With the discovery of this new breast cancer marker
, it will be possible to develop new and more effective therapeutic drugs based on KLF6-SV1 that can potentially reduce mortalities due to breast cancer.
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
Scientists have long been investigating a blood test for an ovarian cancer marker
called CA-125, as well as TVU.
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.
Once upon a time, a cancer marker
that showed initial promise was embraced for use in insurance screening by a prominent carrier.
Under the terms of the agreement, Clarient obtained an exclusive license to HDC's prostate cancer marker
and plans to immediately initiate the commercialization process for the test.
