Indian-Led Ground-Breaking Cancer Test Hopes To Launch This Year
An Indian biotechnology initiative has claimed a striking breakthrough in the early detection of cancer that could dramatically advance the diagnosis of the disease, saving millions of lives, once cleared by regulators as early as the end of this year.
Mumbai-based Epigeneres Biotechnology and Singapore-based Tzar Labs, both led by nanotech scientist Vinay Kumar Tripathi and his family, have published their findings claiming 100 per cent efficacy in a peer-reviewed reviewed journal out of Berlin.
Dr Tripathi's sons Ashish and Anish, who are involved in the management of the two companies, told NDTV that their trial was able to identify 25 different kinds of cancer in a 1,000-person clinical study and solved one of the biggest challenges with the disease - detecting it in time for treatment.
"We intend to bring this technology to India first and our aim is to have it introduced by the end of the year. This is of course something that needs regulatory approval and we are talking to the right parties in the country," Ashish Tripathi said.
