Immunovia AB (publ) (“Immunovia”), a diagnostic company that develops and sells highly accurate blood tests for the early detection of cancer, today announced that the largest patient organization for pancreatic cancer in the US – Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) – informed their constituents about Immunovia, Inc.’s blood test IMMray™ PanCan-d on its website, in social media and through direct email contact.
PanCAN underlines that IMMray™ PanCan-d is the first-ever blood test specific for pancreatic cancer and is available to people considered at high risk for the disease, due to family history or genetic alterations. PanCAN describes that the test is requested through one’s doctor, who also will receive the test results from Immunovia, Inc. Interested individuals can contact PanCAN Patient Services, which provides free information and answers questions about the IMMray™ PanCan-d test.
“Pancreatic cancer is a tough disease. There isn’t an early detection test for the general population, and there are very few treatment options, so it’s exciting to see progress being made. The Immunovia IMMray™ PanCan-d test is an important step for some patients to be diagnosed earlier, have more treatment options and live longer”, said Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA, President and CEO of Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).
“It’s of tremendous value that PanCAN helps to raise awareness about Immunovia, Inc.’s blood test IMMray™ PanCan-d in the US. PanCAN reaches a very wide audience and speaks directly to persons in the familial/hereditary risk group that need to be given the opportunity to get tested”, said Patrik Dahlen, Immunovia’s CEO.
IMMray™ PanCan-d was launched by Immunovia, Inc. in the US in August and is currently available in all states except from New York, California, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.
