IT'S TIME TO CONTROL CANCER

It has been shown that hPG80 (Circulating Progastrin) is produced by all cancer cells across all stages, but in quantities 100 to 1000 times higher by cancer stem cells which are considered to be primarily responsible for recurrence and metastasis. 

hPG80 is released from the tumor and becomes detectable in the blood, making hPG80 the only blood biomarker that not only detect the presence but also the activity of the tumor.

16 different cancers have been tested, the 16 were positive. Of these 16 cancers, 11 have been published to date.

Detection and assay of hPG80 can provide Physicians with new information that can help them:

  • Evaluate treatment efficacy,

  • Monitor risk of relapse,

  • Assess Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) risk,

  • Diagnose cancers which have no biomarker and for at-risk populations, in order to detect early enough the tumor, easily located in these populations.
