EDP Biotech Plans to Commercialize ColoMarker

EDP Biotech announced its plans to commercialize the product and bring the new technology to market. Unlike other diagnostic tests currently in development, the ColoMarker test detects a level of CA11-19 antigen, a specific protein molecule found in the bloodstream. While every human being produces this protein, elevated levels in the bloodstream suggest the presence of colon cancer. ColoMarker(TM) has proven to be effective in identifying elevated levels of a biomarker in the bloodstream in 95% of early stage colorectal cancers, when the disease is most treatable and survival rates are highest. To date, physicians have relied primarily on colonoscopies and fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) to identify potential cases of early stage colon cancer.
