THOUSAND OAKS, CA – October 1, 2020 – LungLife AI, a leader in liquid biopsy technology for cancer diagnosis and management, announced today that clinical data from a research collaboration in early lung cancer detection will be presented at the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) Hot Topic Meeting taking place on October 2nd and 3rd. The data highlight the Company’s progress in developing the LungLB® test which discriminates benign from malignant lesions in individuals with indeterminate lung nodules who are at risk for lung cancer.
The study is being completed with collaborators from Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and demonstrates the potential of circulating tumor cells (CTC) for early lung cancer detection. LungLife AI is also presenting on the use of artificial intelligence in accurate CTC identification developed in partnership with Persistent Systems.
“Lung cancer spreads early and by using CTCs we are best positioned to find malignancy at the earliest possible stage,” says Paul Pagano, PhD, CEO at LungLife AI. “The majority of cancerous nodules in our study were diagnosed at Stage I, when the possibility for cure is greatest. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share results of our pilot study with scientists, physicians, and advocates.”
The following are the details for the two presentations:
