Eradicating Late-Stage Cancer Deaths Through Early Detection
- 1 out of every 4 people will get cancer. It is more likely than not that every one of us will be affected by cancer, whether personally or through a loved one.
- Early detection can be the difference between life and death. We may not be able to prevent all cancers, but we can intercept cancer in the early stages, when treatment is more effective.
- A new generation of blood-based screening tests can detect cancer accurately before any symptoms appear. In contrast, traditional blood tests for cancer detect less than 70% of cancers and have a high level of false-positives.
We have developed a sensitive, non-invasive and cost-effective miRNA detection technologies to empower physicians and individuals to detect cancer early. With a simple blood test, we can detect cell-free miRNAs secreted by tumor cells, even before clinical symptoms appear.
