NuView Life Sciences Announces Presentation of Data for Novel Prostate and Bladder Cancer Molecular Diagnostic at SNMMI
Date:6/18/2013

nvasive, simple and reliable detection of Prostate and Bladder Cancer. Currently, routine screening of the general public for bladder cancer is not recommended by any major professional organization. This is due to lack of a sensitive and specific test that will detect bladder cancer in an individual without clinical symptoms of disease. Current screening for Prostate Cancer by digital rectal examination (DRE) and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood levels result in low cancer predictive ability and lead to increased numbers of potentially unnecessary invasive biopsy procedures.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men and over 72,000 men and women are estimated to be diagnosed with Bladder Cancer in the U.S. in 2013. Mortality from Prostate and Bladder Cancer strongly correlates with the stage of disease upon diagnosis. Therefore, the ability to detect early-stage cancer before clinical presentation would have a dramatic effect upon patient outcomes.

About NuView’s VPAC1 Technology platform

Previous research by Dr. Thakur and others has revealed that Breast, Prostate, and other cancer cells express the VPAC1 oncogene product in high density on their cell surface. This expression occurs at a very early stage in oncogenic transformation, well before changes in cell morphology. For Prostate Cancer cells, VPAC1 expression occurs well before the elevation of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA).

This VPAC1-based urine screen (TP4303) utilizes the same technology as NLS-VPAC1 ([Cu-64]-TP3805), our positron emission tomography (PET)-based molecular imaging diagnostic. Recently, Dr. Thakur presented results from a PET imaging study in Breast Cancer patients where NLS-VPAC1 unequivocally identified 100% (n=19) of the malignant lesions, irrespective of their hormonal status. NLS-VPAC1 also detected all (100%) sentinel lymph nodes (n=4). NuView is developing NLS-VPAC1 for the identification and localiza
