Nottingham research leads to blood test for early detection of cancer
Date:6/1/2010

The University of Nottingham spin-out company, Oncimmune Ltd, has developed a ground breaking blood test which will aid the detection of cancer as much as five years earlier than current testing methods such as mammography and CT scans. Physicians will know the result of their patient's test within one week of sending in a blood sample to Oncimmune.

Oncimmune has developed a new technique which replicates the cancer proteins that trigger the body's response to the disease and robotic technology to measure this response. This new technology (immuno-biomarkers) provides a significant advance in how early a cancer may be detected and is likely to change the current paradigm of diagnosis and treatment for most solid cancers such as lung, breast, ovarian, colon and prostate.

Based on the early work of John Robertson, a world renowned breast cancer specialist and Professor of Surgery in The University of Nottingham's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Oncimmune has successfully transferred this science into a reproducible commercial test. The test for lung cancer, EarlyCDT-Lung will be launched nationally in the USA this month followed by a launch in the UK early next year.

Geoffrey Hamilton-Fairley, Executive Chairman of Oncimmune, said: "We believe this test, along with the others we will launch in the next few years, will lead to a better prognosis for a significant number of cancer sufferers."

Initial research results were derived using blood samples from patients with breast cancer and a group of high risk women attending for annual mammography which Professor Robertson had prospectively collected in Nottingham. All samples were obtained with fully informed consent as part of a study which had received approval from the appropriate ethics committee. In addition to identifying the signal in the blood of a percentage of women when they developed breast cancer the results also showed that the signal could be detected in s
