Biomoda Conducts Lung Cancer Clinical Study With Veterans

February 14, 2008 - The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (New Mexico Tech) and Biomoda Inc. have partnered with the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS) to conduct a $350,000 clinical study using proprietary testing technology for detection of early lung cancer in the state’s veterans.

The clinical program will be administered by New Mexico Tech, a science and engineering research university in Socorro. Biomoda, through its Albuquerque office, will conduct the first year of the program using its patented noninvasive diagnostic technology for screening of early stage lung cancer in large populations. New Mexico Tech and the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services will oversee the clinical program.

Biomoda's technology is based on an application that identifies cancerous or aberrant cells from samples of lung sputum. Cancerous cells glow red under fluorescent light and can be detected under a microscope. The technology is noninvasive and designed for cancer screening of large populations at a reasonable cost.

Biomoda’s team of experts will be dedicated to the year long clinical study. The team includes representatives from TriCore Laboratories, Averion International, and Quintiles Consulting. The Black Veterans Association of New Mexico will assist with outreach to veterans.
