AnPac Bio-Medical Science Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: ANPC), a biotechnology company with operations in China and the United States focused on early cancer screening and detection, announced today preliminary results from two prospective studies demonstrated that AnPac Bio’s Cancer Differentiation Analysis (CDA) based tests have the ability to assess the risks of cancer occurrence.
In a study of follow-up phone consultations commenced in 2017, over 13,000 individuals (including individuals tested with high risk, medium risk and low risk CDA scores) had provided the company with substantive feedback regarding their health conditions and disease development as of July 31, 2020, and among them, there had been diagnosed over 190 cancer cases, over 900 pre-cancer cases, and 700 disease cases, with higher predictive values being statistically significantly higher from individuals with higher CDA scores. In another prospective study that began last year with close to 2,000 individuals of 65 years old or above, 10 cancer cases have been confirmed. The above results demonstrated that CDA technology is capable of assessing pre-cancer and early stage cancer risks.
AnPac Bio’s CEO, Dr. Chris Yu, commented, “while there are a number of cancer screening technologies aimed at detecting cancer early, only a limited number of them have proven the ability to do so, with many of them still in the R&D phase. AnPac Bio’s CDA technology has been demonstrated, in both retrospective and prospective studies, to be able to detect pre-cancer disease and early stage cancer signals with statistical significance. We are proud to be saving lives.”
Dr. Chris Yu continued, “Cancer screening markets in both US and China are significant and growing. The current global cancer diagnostics market size is $144 Billion and expected to grow up to $249 Billion by 2026. We believe that AnPac Bio is well positioned to capture these markets with our innovative technology, significant patent portfolio, one of the world’s largest clinical sample size among companies offering next-generation early cancer screening and detection technologies, and extensive experience in cancer screening and detection.”
