Zomedica Announces Research Agreement with Celsee Diagnostics for Cancer Liquid Biopsy
A liquid biopsy is a blood test with the potential to detect the presence of circulating tumor cells in the blood. Circulating tumor cells, commonly referred to as CTCs, are cells that have shed from a primary tumor into neighboring blood vessels and are transported throughout the body’s circulatory system. The detection of CTCs in the blood could indicate a cancer diagnosis without the need for an invasive tissue biopsy.
Concurrent to this research project, Zomedica filed a provisional application for patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in support of its research and development efforts specific to canine cancer diagnostics. The provisional patent is based on Zomedica’s identification of novel canine biomarkers for diagnosing canine cancers.
“Canine cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in the veterinary clinic,” stated Zomedica’s Chief Medical Officer
This translational opportunity aligns with Zomedica’s veterinary-focused mission to provide needs-driven solutions to the real-world problems of veterinary practice. Zomedica anticipates translational opportunities such as this to be an important component of its diversified product strategy.
