Canary Foundation Commits to Supporting New Platform for Cancer Diagnostics
Date:10/11/2009

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Canary Foundation has committed to being the first organization to implement the breakthrough in biosensor technologies in its research pipeline. The new technology promises to revolutionize the early detection cancer field. Scientists from Stanford University's Department of Bioengineering, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, Department of Radiology, Bio-X Program, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Department of Urology have developed a new ultra-sensitive magnetic nanosensor (magneto-nanosensor) that can measure biomarkers in a host of clinical samples such as blood, urine, and saliva. It promises to detect disease much earlier than ever before.

Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection, Director of the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS), Head of the Division of Nuclear Medicine, and Member of Bio-X Program and Departments of Radiology & Bioengineering, co-authored the "Matrix-insensitive protein assays: pushing the limits of biosensors in medicine" paper that will appear in the October 2009 edition of Nature Medicine. The paper proves that the magneto-nanosensors are over 1,000 times more sensitive and effective than the current "gold" standard, ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays).

"We are extremely excited to be the first foundation to use the new measures and methods in magneto-nanosensor technology towards early cancer detection," stated Don Listwin, founder and chairman of Canary Foundation and member of the National Cancer Institute Board of Scientific Advisors. "We will be bringing all developed biomarkers across our programs at Canary to this chip for ongoing development and testing."

The magneto-nanosensor is very sensitive: a small amount of protein can be tested in a drop of blood to detect the change cancer causes in the bloodstre
