New Scientific Publication Further Supports BioMark's Assay

TheNewswire |

Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - August 27th, 2019 - BioMark Diagnostics Inc. ("BioMark") is pleased to announce that the article "Predictive value and clinical significance of increased SSAT-1 activity in healthy adults" has been published in the peer-reviewed journal Future Science OA.

Rashid Ahmed, President and CEO, says, "This is our latest trilogy SSAT-1(Spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase ) publication and we would like to acknowledge the contributions made by a dedicated team of clinicians, scientists and researchers. This publication provides additional scientific validation and evidence that one of our technology platforms (SSAT1 assay) has important clinical applications in the cancer diagnostic space. In our previous clinical studies, we observed that some healthy volunteers ("outliers") had, higher than expected acetylated amantadine (AA) concentration. This was intriguing and we subsequently conducted detailed clinical assessments. Analysis of the 'outliers' observed in previous studies using the amantadine test revealed that a large number were at risk or developed cancer, suggesting that the test can predict the occurrence of cancer. Monitoring of urinary AA concentration combined with clinical and hematological characteristics could be established as a useful tool for purposes of screening and follow-up for cancer in high-risk populations. Our findings in 'outliers' support usefulness of amantadine assay as a screening or surveillance test in populations considered at high risk for developing cancer. It is also possible that this test could be used for monitoring patients after curative surgical or chemoradiation therapy to assess eradication of the tumor. Also, in follow-up, it could possibly detect proliferation of new cancer cells (relapse)".

"We are on track to publish additional peer reviewed papers and present abstracts or posters in the near term on significant discoveries that we have strategically invested resources over the past few years." says Rashid.

The paper is available through open access at https://www.future- science.com/doi/full/10.2144/fsoa-2019-0023 and on https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31428447.
