food services business catering to niche markets. White attended the

With Biomoda's technology, clinicians can identify cancerous or aberrant cells extracted from samples of lung sputum; cancerous cells glow red under fluorescent light and can be detected under a microscope. Current diagnostic methods for lung cancer, including CT scans and X-rays, often detect the disease at more advanced stages. Biomoda's technology complements these tools by screening for signs of lung cancer at an earlier stage, ensuring that patients receive advanced tests at the appropriate time.

Earlier this year, Biomoda and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology announced their partnership with the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services to conduct a $350,000 clinical study using Biomoda's proprietary testing technology for detection of early lung cancer in the state's veterans. The New Mexico state legislature recently allocated an additional $1.3 million in funding through the Interim Tobacco Settlement Committee to the clinical screening program.

Lung cancer claims more lives than any other cancer. The expected five-year survival rate for all patients diagnosed with lung cancer is 15 percent; the five-year survival rate for cases detected when the disease is still localized is 50 percent. Presently, only 16 percent of lung cancer cases are diagnosed at this early stage.
Biomoda's technology was originally developed at Los Alamos National
