VisionGate Closes $2 Million Financing and Announces Collaboration to Evaluate Its 3D Cell Imaging Platform for Early Lung Cancer Detection
Date:10/19/2011

the collaboration with Sheba Medical Center, VisionGate's LuCED is being evaluated along with other non-invasive measures to determine whether they can be used in conjunction with x-ray CT lung cancer scans to reduce the number of false positive results.  Nir Peled, MD, PhD, FCCP, who is Head of the Thoracic Cancer Research and Detection Center at Sheba, is conducting the study with 200 patients with pulmonary nodules detected by x-ray CT scans where the diagnosis remains unclear.  

Dr. Peled noted, "The NLST study results confirm that x-ray CT scanning can detect lung cancers at their earliest stage and save lives; however, the associated high rate of false positive findings is likely to restrict its broad use.  Our clinical study is exploring whether VisionGate's LuCED technology used in conjunction with x-ray CT scanning can be used to distinguish true positive from false positive results.  I look forward to helping to determine whether LuCED has the potential to serve as an adjunct to improve the accuracy of CT lung cancer screening results and thereby help make its life-saving potential available to many more patients."

VisionGate also reported that it is entering into additional strategic partnerships for the clinical assessment of the LuCED technology.  These include a collaboration with Paul Zarogoulidis, MD, PhD, pulmonary physician at G. Papanikolaou General Hospital, Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece to evaluate LuCED as a primary screening test in 200 lung cancer patients who have undergone surgery and are at risk of developing second primary cancers.

"We are delighted to be working with prominent researchers around the globe to evaluate LuCED's potential in the early detection of lung cancer," said Scarlett Spring, president of VisionGate.  "We believe our strategy of establishing multiple collaborations to assess promising applications for the LuCED platform will provide us with important d
