Rapid blood test sensitive to advanced adenomas could improve patient prognosis and ultimately reduce mortality
ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Dxcover Limited, a clinical-stage diagnostics company developing spectroscopic liquid biopsy technology for early detection of multiple cancers, today presented new data in a presentation titled “Early Detection and Molecular Markers of Prevention” on the detection of colorectal cancer (CRC) using the company’s liquid biopsy platform at the 2023 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida from April 14-19.
Co-founder and CTO Matthew Baker, PhD, outlined data from a preclinical study evaluating the Dxcover® Cancer Liquid Biopsy platform’s capabilities to detect advanced adenomas and early cases of colorectal cancer. CRC is the third most common cancer among both men and women, which would greatly benefit from earlier detection due to decreased survival rates as the cancer progresses. On average, the survival rate after diagnosis for CRC decreases from 91% in early-stage CRC to as low as 15% for stage IV.
