BioCurex Poised For Positive Future Based On Results (OTC:BOCX)
MiV Investments Inc. initiates independent research on BioCurex, Inc. (OTC:BOCX). It is a biotechnology company developing products for cancer diagnosis, imaging, and therapy that target a global oncology market forecast to reach over $50 billion by 2009.
The Company uses a novel, patented technology based on the RECAF™ cancer marker, discovered by Dr. Ricardo Moro-Vidal, BioCurex’s chief executive officer (CEO), president, and founder. RECAF™ is a molecule found on malignant† cells but absent from most normal or benign cells. BioCurex believes that the detection of this molecule in tissue or serum samples is the foundation for new cancer diagnostic tests and imaging techniques.
The RECAF™ marker has been found on every cancer tissue that BioCurex has studied to date, including on many common, severe cancers: breast, lung, gastric, prostate, and leukemia. This characteristic indicates that RECAF™ is capable of detecting more than one type of cancer, which is a limitation of many currently available cancer markers.
The Company’s RECAF™ technology is reported to have high levels of clinical sensitivity and specificity (measures of cancer marker accuracy), successfully detecting over 90% of cancer in blood and tissue samples. A serum-based assay using RECAF™ recently identified twice as many prostate cancers as the current standard for prostate cancer detection, the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. A RECAF™-based test also detected 90% to 93% of Stage I and Stage II (early stage) breast cancer samples, without any false positives.
This data supports BioCurex’s aim of reducing human suffering through the early detection of cancer or cancer recurrence after treatment. Moreover, due to its ability to differentiate between cancerous and normal cells, RECAF™ technology may facilitate the administration of targeted therapeutics that attack cancer cells but do not damage healthy tissue.
The current state of cancer detection
• According to the World Health Organization the number of people diagnosed with malignant tumors will increase by 50% in a dozen years.
• Survival rates depend mostly on how early the disease is discovered. i.e. The five-year survival rate for breast
cancer ranges from 87% at Stage I to only 13% at Stage IV.) RECAF technology detects malignancy earlier, more accurately, and potentially far more cost-effectively.
• Current cancer detection is still primitive. Needle and surgical biopsies are the most accurate, but far from
perfect. They’re also highly intrusive and can cause serious infections. Blood testing, as it now exists, is much less accurate and rife with false positives. (i.e. PSA is a mediocre marker for prostate cancer. It catches only 80% of malignancies — yet produces 65% false positives in patients with benign tumors that usually require no treatment. Yet, all too often, patients are still subjected to costly and debilitating surgical procedures.)
