SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - 01/25/10) - Arrayit Corporation (OTC.BB: ARYC - News), a leading manufacturer of products and services for disease prevention, treatment and cure, announces that Arrayit's new proteomic biomarkers will allow doctors to provide patients with a true pre-symptomatic diagnosis for Ovarian Cancer. Similar biomarkers are being developed to discover if patients are pre-symptomatic for Prostate Cancer and Parkinson's disease.
Confusion surrounds the discovery of various biomarkers that detect specific diseases and cancers. Recent breakthroughs laud biomarkers generated by tumors -- derived from patients with significant cancerous growths. Differentially, the patented Arrayit platform allows pre-symptomatic diagnosis based on biomarkers generated by the patient's immune response to the very first indication of disease.
Arrayit President, Dr. Mark Schena, told ProteoMonitor, the Global Newsweekly of Proteomics Technology, that the main difference between the company's OvaDx and the industry biomarker, CA125 for ovarian cancer, is that OvaDx "allows primary screening of all women, whereas CA125 is used mainly as a monitoring tool for women who already have ovarian cancer. OvaDx allows early-stage, pre-symptomatic detection of ovarian cancer, and as such is a true preventative medicine health care product."
Dr. Schena provided more details on OvaDx in a January 15, 2010 article in the European publication Clinica, which monitors World Technology Medical News. For access to this article, please Click Here.
