Breakthrough Precision Medicine Technology for Non-Invasive Approach to Detecting Cancer

VPAC1 biomarkers are expressed on cell surfaces in high densities at the onset of oncogenesis. When VPAC1 receptors are targeted, cancer can be diagnosed early, but specifically, it allows physicians to distinguish malignant from benign lesions. NuView’s new NV-VPAC1 technology works as a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging agent for the in vivo diagnosis of breast and prostate cancer, by combining an NV-VPAC1 peptide with a medical imaging isotope, illuminating cancerous VPAC1 biomarkers for detection and removal.

NV-VPAC1™ used in conjunction with a PET scan and fluorescent dye can detect and confirm the shed of cancer cells in voided urine, thus positioning the NV-VPAC1™ test as a non-invasive “liquid biopsy”. Unlike difficult, time-consuming, and expensive laboratory tests required to access intercellular nuclei mutations, the NV-VPAC1™ diagnostic test is uniquely positioned to confirm cancer, with its distinctive ability to visualize the over expression of the receptor on the cell membrane by binding to the VPAC receptors. If there aren’t any VPAC receptors on the cell membrane, the VPAC1 peptide is simply excreted quickly. The in vitro diagnostic test can confirm cancer cells under a pathology microscope. This could later allow for comprehensive cell confirmation of the origin of the detected cancer cells. A modified version of the test may also be used on a rapid strip test in a physician’s office to confirm the presence of cancer cells.
