EarlyCDT®Lung measures autoantibodies to detect lung cancer

  • EarlyCDT-Lung measures blood levels of seven autoantibodies produced in response to lung cancer tumor associated antigens (TAA’s)
  • These autoantibodies can be at elevated levels in the blood from the earliest stages of lung cancer. They have been shown to be elevated for all types of lung cancer, and at all stages of the disease
  • EarlyCDT-Lung can detect elevated levels of autoantibodies four years or more before diagnosis2,3
  • Early diagnosis of lung cancer significantly improves the chances of survival4

Oncimmune’s patented EarlyCDT® autoantibody technology can be applied to many solid tumor types

  • Oncimmune has 9 patent families that protect the products and its intellectual property. This has led to numerous granted patents in 50 countries worldwide. There are specific patents that cover the EarlyCDT-Lung test, prohibiting competitors from marketing identical diagnostics tests. Oncimmune is continually monitoring the IP landscape, and further patent applications are in the pipeline
  • Oncimmune launched EarlyCDT®-Liver cancer in Q1 2018
  • We are also working on tests for other cancers
