About Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is a worldwide public health problem, with more than 940,000 new cases diagnosed each year, resulting in approximately 500,000 deaths.(2) In the U.S., it is the third leading cause of cancer mortality, and in 2008, nearly 50,000 deaths will be attributed to this disease.(3) Its incidence rate is strongly correlated with age. Data from industrialized countries demonstrate that the incidence of colorectal cancer rises three-fold between the ages of 60 and 80 years.(4)

About Saladax

Saladax Biomedical is pioneering the development of novel, fast, and inexpensive immunoassays that will enable routine blood-level monitoring of anti-cancer drugs to become the standard-of-care in treating cancer patients. With Personalized Chemotherapy Management (PCM), oncologists will be able to adjust the administered dose based on each patient's individual drug level, leading to reduced toxicity, improved outcome and lower cancer care costs. Saladax is headquartered at the business incubator of the Ben Franklin Technology Partners (BFTP) of Northeastern Pennsylvania on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem. The 5-FU PCM test will be available to U.S. clinicians later this year through a major reference laboratory.
