NuView Life Sciences and Thomas Jefferson University Sign Agreement for Exclusive Development and Commercialization Rights to Novel Prostate Cancer Diagnostic
Date:3/26/2013

agent that measures VPAC1 expression levels for identification and localization of malignant Breast and Prostate tumors.

There remains a large unmet medical need for the accurate and early detection of Prostate and Bladder Cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men and over 72,000 men and women are estimated to be diagnosed with Bladder Cancer in the U.S. in 2013. Mortality from Prostate and Bladder Cancer strongly correlates with the stage of disease upon diagnosis. Therefore, the ability to detect early-stage cancer before clinical presentation would have a dramatic effect upon patient outcomes.

Currently, routine screening of the general public for bladder cancer is not recommended by any major professional organization. This is due to lack of a sensitive and specific test that will detect bladder cancer in individual not presenting clinical symptoms of disease. Current screening for Prostate Cancer by digital rectal examination (DRE) and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) tests results in low cancer predictive ability and increases the number of referrals for invasive biopsy.
