Mainz Biomed N.V. (MYNZ −5.69%), a molecular genetics diagnostic company focusing on early cancer detection, is set to present the encouraging findings from its ColoFuture study at the 4th International Conference on Gastroenterology in Paris, France. The study evaluated the integration of novel gene expression biomarkers into ColoAlert®, the company’s effective screening test for colorectal cancer.
The ColoFuture trial, conducted across multiple international centers, demonstrated promising results for the sensitivity and specificity of ColoAlert® when combined with the company’s innovative mRNA markers. Noteworthy outcomes included a 94% sensitivity and 97% specificity for colorectal cancer detection, along with an 81% sensitivity for advanced adenomas. The study involved 220 subjects from Germany, Norway, and Denmark.
ColoAlert® stands out as a non-invasive, at-home colorectal cancer screening kit with high accuracy. By analyzing tumor DNA, it provides superior early detection compared to conventional fecal occult blood tests. The test’s PCR-based technology enables it to identify more cases of colorectal cancer, allowing for earlier diagnoses.
