Data shows VisionGate's 3D imaging platform accurately detects lung cancer in sputum
Date:10/28/2013

Sydney, Australia and Phoenix, AZ, USA October 28, 2013 VisionGate, Inc., a company developing a revolutionary non-invasive test for the early detection of lung cancer, today reported clinical data showing that its automated 3D cell imaging platform, the Cell-CT, can detect lung cancer in sputum samples with high sensitivity and specificity. The data was presented at the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 15th World Conference on Lung Cancer.

The pilot study analyzed sputum samples from patients with confirmed lung cancer and from healthy individuals. The results show that VisionGate's Cell-CT platform and LuCED sputum test accurately detected the presence or absence of lung cancer cells in patient sputum from a spontaneous cough. In the 53 individuals studied to date, LuCED and the Cell-CT achieved a sensitivity of more than 95% and specificity of 99.8%. The high sensitivity indicates that the Cell-CT detects most cancers, and the high specificity means that the rate of false positive readings is exceedingly low. This is far greater accuracy than has been demonstrated with any other lung cancer screening test.

"Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., primarily because it is not detected until after the cancer has spread," commented Alan Nelson, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of VisionGate. "Results to date from this ongoing clinical study suggest that LuCED and the Cell-CT correctly identify more than nine out of every ten cases of lung cancer with virtually no false positive results, supporting the goal of developing a new lung cancer screening paradigm that is both accurate and cost-effective."

The automated Cell-CT platform creates strikingly clear and comprehensive 3D digital images of the cells contained in sputum. It uses advanced algorithms to identify the presence or absence of cell biosignatures associated with malignant or normal status, making it possible to determine with
