GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Panacea Pharmaceuticals, Inc. presents a paper regarding detection
"Improved Detection of Cancer Specific Serum Exosomal Aspartyl (Asparaginyl) beta Hydroxylase (HAAH)"
The paper demonstrates major refinements to Panacea's multi-cancer HAAH-exosome detection assay that targets the cancer-specific blood serum biomarker HAAH. The cancer field is intensely focused upon exosomes, which are small cell-like nanoparticles derived from the cancer cells that are proving to be important biomarkers and mediators of cancer cell metastasis and progression.
The association of Panacea's target molecule HAAH with exosomes has led to a better individual understanding of these biomarkers as well as further development of a markedly improved diagnostic test with higher sensitivity and specificity than previous versions of the assay.
"We are excited to report our continued advances in the understanding of the role of serum exosomes in the detection and monitoring of cancer," said Hossein Ghanbari, Ph.D., CEO and CSO of Panacea.
