Immunovia is focused on fundamentally transforming diagnosis of complex forms of cancer and autoimmune diseases. The antibody-based platform, IMMray™, is the result of 15 years of research at CREATE Health – the Center for Translational Cancer Research at Lund University, Sweden. IMMray™ is a technology platform for the development of diagnostic tests and the company’s primary test. IMMray™ PanCan-d is the first test in the world for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
• It is planned to launch IMMray™ PanCan-d on the American and European markets with sales to selfpay-customers, to start when the accreditation and production upscaling have been completed, with revenues expected to begin in 2018. In coming years Immunovia will address a market that in total is worth around SEK 35 billion.
• Immunovia sees great potential in the development of tests for other unsolved problems in cancer and autoimmune diseases via its IMMray™ platform. The next focus area will be tests within SLE, based on the positive results announced in early 2017.

Immunovia AB was founded in 2007 by investigators from the Department of Immunotechnology at Lund University and CREATE Health, the Center for Translational Cancer Research in Lund, Sweden. Immunovia’s strategy is to decipher the wealth of information in blood and translate it into clinically useful tools to diagnose complex diseases such as cancer, earlier and more accurately than previously possible. Immunovia´s core technology platform, IMMray® , is based on antibody biomarker microarray analysis. The company is now performing clinical validation studies for the commercialization of IMMray® PanCan-d that could be the first blood based test for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. In the beginning of 2016, the company started a program focused on autoimmune diseases diagnosis, prognosis and therapy monitoring. The first test from this program, IMMray® SLE-d, is a biomarker signature derived for differential diagnosis of lupus, now undergoing evaluation and validation. (Source: www.immunovia.com)
