News Sep 16, 2011
Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation, has announced it has filed for patent protection for its proprietary Onko-Sure® cancer test in Australia and New Zealand.
"Building an intellectual property position in foreign markets protects and supports sales of our proprietary Onko-Sure® cancer test globally. Both Australia and New Zealand have highly developed healthcare markets where we believe Onko-Sure® can add value as a minimally invasive, relatively low cost cancer diagnostic," stated Radient Chairman and CEO Douglas MacLellan.
The Onko-Sure® test kit is a 96-well ELISA test kit sold to clinical reference labs. Labs run individual tests prescribed by doctors. Blood samples can be run, in duplicate, for 40 people, on each test kit.
Onko-Sure® is a non-invasive cancer blood test that has been shown, in a large body of published clinical research, to be effective in the detection of 19 different cancers.
Researchers have created a portable and fast-acting test that can distinguish Ebola infections from other fever-causing infectious diseases such as Lassa fever and malaria in around 30 minutes. Although further testing is required, this could be useful during febrile disease outbreaks.READ MORE
