New Identafi(TM) 3000 Identifies Signs of Silent Killer:
Date:2/11/2009

need for technology that not only will reliably deliver enhanced specificity, sensitivity, and efficacy, but is inexpensive enough that every doctor and dentist's office can carry it," TRIMIRA(TM) VP Jerry S. Trzeciak explained.

"Oral cancer kills one person every hour of every day, " he said. "The way to stop it is through early detection, and that means getting every doctor and every dentist involved in that effort."

Accuracy Is Key to Lowering Oral Cancer Rates

Trzeciak noted that oral cancer has become a true epidemic due to the lack of effective, broad-based early detection programs. In fact, the oral cancer death rate now surpasses that from breast, cervical, or prostate cancers. The rise in oral cancer has occurred despite decreased use of tobacco products. The reason is the disease's link to the HPV 16 and 18 viruses.

One of the most common virus groups in the world, HPV (human papilloma virus) affects the skin and mucosal areas of the body. More than 100 types of HPV have been identified.

"Trimira's multispectral Identafi(TM) technology platform allowed for development of a device that combines three separate wavelengths to visualize both fluorescence and reflectance images in the oral cavity," he said. "Trimira's oral cancer screening device can spot the location of pre-cancerous cells and determine the extent of the disease in the area being screened."

Oral cancer is often detected late in its development, when the possibility of metastasis is far greater. Like most cancers, cancer of the lip and oral cavity are best treated when found early.

Metastasis is the spread of a disease from one organ or body part to another nonadjacent organ or body part. Only malignant tumor cells and infections have the capacity to metastasize. Cancer cells can break away or spill from a primary tumor and enter the bloodstream or lymphati
