Senior Scientific selected MD Anderson to test the new system because of MD Anderson’s advanced cancer research facilities and the shared goal of bringing Senior Scientific’s technology from "bench to bedside.”
MD Anderson is collaborating with Senior Scientific to test the technology because of its potential to avoid false positives and provide the ability to detect cancer years earlier than other approaches. In many cancers, early detection is the key to cure.
Senior Scientific’s technology uses iron oxide nanoparticles and biomarkers to target specific cancer cell receptors. The instrument is used to rapidly magnetize, and then detect, the nanoparticles that have found cancer cells. The resulting measurement is specific to the targeted cells and is much more sensitive than existing technologies.
Following two years of informal collaboration, MD Anderson and Senior Scientific have now inked a deal to formally collaborate on this technology seeking a path toward
Dr. Flynn said, "Cancer remains the second most common cause of death in the U.S., accounting for nearly one of every four deaths. Our formal collaboration with MD Anderson brings to fruition years of research from our MHTX team. I am excited to reach this important milestone which places our ground breaking technology into the skilled hands of the physicians and researchers at MDACC to help fight Cancer, the emperor of all maladies."
