Power3 Medical Products, Inc. (OTCBB:PWRM), (www.power3medical.com), announced today that the company made significant advances in the technology for their BC-SeraProâ¢ serum protein based blood test for diagnosis of early stage breast cancer, as disclosed in recent filings of three pending US utility patent applications.
âRoughly 200,000 women in the US and 1.2 million women worldwide are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. In the US roughly 40,000 women die of the disease because the cancer is caught too late. In fact, nearly Â½ of all cancers are missed as false negatives and 75% of the biopsies of suspected breast cancer performed are false positive and therefore could have been avoided if there was a more accurate test that could be made readily available,â said Ira L. Goldknopf, Ph.D., president and chief scientific officer of Power3. âWe now have made strides towards this goal through refinements in our blood test for early stage detection of breast cancer.â
As disclosed in the patent applications, Power3 has identified a group of 22 blood serum proteins with abnormal concentrations in women with breast cancer. Using the companyâs BC-SeraPro platform, Power3 used these protein biomarkers to distinguish women with breast cancer from those with benign abnormal breast conditions and with normal breasts with sensitivities and specificities in the 80-90% range, in retrospective banked and prospective newly drawn samples from patients and controls.
The biomarkers also distinguish between women with purely invasive primary breast cancer and women who also have ductal carcinoma in situ which is often missed in mammograms. In addition, following the âPrincipals of Omic Medicineâ that Dr. Goldknopf is promoting at international scientific meetings in the US and China, the company has disclosed methods for making biomarker specific antibodies for development of a user friendly commercial test for breast cancer. "We are enthusiastic about the increased value of BC-SeraPro with these 3 exemplary patent filings. Although we are striving to commercialize with our tests, we also recognize that this work has potential to alleviate much suffering," commented Ms. Helen R. Park, CEO of Power3. "Thus we will be publishing our results in the near term."
