IMMray™ PanCan-d

Early detection of pancreatic cancer for increased survival rates

IMMray PanCan-d is a unique blood test for the early detection of pancreatic cancer that has the potential to dramatically increase patient survival rates: from 5-8% to up to 49%. Our retrospective studies show that the test is able to detect stage I and stage II pancreatic cancer with an accuracy of 96%. A test with such a high level of accuracy would give clinicians a much greater chance of finding the cancer when it is still resectable by surgical procedures.

IMMray™ PanCan-d blood test will be exclusively provided by Immunovia Inc., Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA.

A standard patient blood sample is taken by the clinician and sent to the laboratory. At the laboratory, patient serum samples are applied on to the IMMray PanCan-d microarray that has room for up to 14 patient samples. Each microarray generates a biomarker signature that is evaluated for pancreatic cancer using advanced bioinformatics and complex software algorithms, after scanning with a standard fluorescent scanner.

IMMray PanCan-d has the potential to address several unmet clinical needs:

  1. Screening of high-risk groups i.e. familial/hereditary pancreatic cancer
  2. Testing of new onset diabetes type II patients over 50 years who suffer a 6-8 times increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer within 1-3 years
  3. Testing of patients with vague symptom profiles were the clinicans suspects, or wants to rule out, pancreatic cancer

IMMray PanCan-d is currently undergoing a prospective validation study to confirm our findings before market introduction.
