EDP Biotech Corporation Announces CE Mark Approval for ColoMarker an in Vitro Diagnostic Aid in Early Detection of Colon Cancer and Plans for Commercialization in Europe
Sep 30 14
EDP Biotech Corporation has announced CE Mark approval for ColoMarker, an aid in early detection of Colon Cancer. This is a critical step toward commercialization of this unique product which will initially be introduced in the thirty member states belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). The EDP ColoMarker test is a quick and easy tool for clinicians as an aid in early detection of colon cancer when it is most treatable, and only requires a small sample of blood. EDP expects that ColoMarker's affordable cost (priced somewhere between IFOBT and FIT stool tests), effectiveness, and the convenience of a whole blood test will significantly improve compliance compared to colonoscopy-based cancer screenings and existing fecal testing options.

EDP Biotech Plans to Commercialize ColoMarker
Jul 9 13
EDP Biotech announced its plans to commercialize the product and bring the new technology to market. Unlike other diagnostic tests currently in development, the ColoMarker test detects a level of CA11-19 antigen, a specific protein molecule found in the bloodstream. While every human being produces this protein, elevated levels in the bloodstream suggest the presence of colon cancer. ColoMarker(TM) has proven to be effective in identifying elevated levels of a biomarker in the bloodstream in 95% of early stage colorectal cancers, when the disease is most treatable and survival rates are highest. To date, physicians have relied primarily on colonoscopies and fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) to identify potential cases of early stage colon cancer.
