FDA Approves ColoSense™ – Geneoscopy’s Noninvasive Multi-target Stool RNA (mt-sRNA) Colorectal Cancer Screening Test

  • In average-risk individuals, ColoSense demonstrated 93% sensitivity for detecting colorectal cancer (CRC) and 45% sensitivity for detecting advanced adenomas (AA).
  • The CRC-PREVENT study evaluated more than 1,800 average-risk individuals aged 45-49, representing over 20% of participants. Results in this subgroup showed 100% sensitivity in detecting CRC and 44% sensitivity for AA, offering a promising new tool to combat early-age onset CRC.

ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Geneoscopy, Inc., a life sciences company focused on developing diagnostic tests for the advancement of gastrointestinal health, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved its noninvasive colorectal cancer screening test, ColoSense. ColoSense is indicated as a screening test for adults, 45 years of age or older, who are at typical average risk for developing CRC.

Designated as a Breakthrough Device by the FDA, ColoSense is the first noninvasive colorectal cancer screening test to provide a dynamic view of disease activity by using RNA biomarkers. RNA biomarkers are not subject to age-related methylation patterns that can lead to variability in test performance across different age groups.1-2

“Securing FDA approval for ColoSense marks a significant milestone for Geneoscopy and demonstrates that our patented RNA technology can provide millions of eligible adults with a safe and effective option for detecting CRC and advanced adenomas,” said Andrew Barnell, CEO and co-founder of Geneoscopy. “This achievement is a testament to our deep dedication and commitment to bringing innovative technology to market that will improve outcomes for this deadly, yet preventable, disease.”

Geneoscopy’s CRC-PREVENT trial evaluated participants aged 45 and older from various racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Using a novel decentralized enrollment approach, 64% of participants had never been screened for colorectal cancer, and 68% of participants had not scheduled a colonoscopy at the time of enrollment. This is unlike traditional centralized trials, in which patients are typically already engaged in healthcare screening programs. In average-risk individuals, ColoSense successfully demonstrated 93% sensitivity for CRC and importantly identified 100% of CRC in Stage I, when the disease is most curable. Additionally, ColoSense detected 45% of advanced adenomas, when the disease is most preventable. Notably, the study reported 100% CRC sensitivity and 44% AA sensitivity in patients aged 45-49, a critically important screening demographic.

Colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer in the United States. However, millions of eligible Americans do not get screened due to a lack of access to or avoidance of invasive options like colonoscopies. CRC incidence rates are also rising among younger populations under 50 years old, prompting a recent shift in the United States Preventive Services Task Force’s guidelines to recommend initiation of CRC screening at age 45.3 Underscoring the critical nature of this issue, the American Cancer Society recently reported that colorectal cancer is now the leading cause of cancer death for males and the second leading cause of death for females under 50.4 Further compounding this challenge, approximately 40% of unscreened and eligible Americans are ages 45-49.5,6

“The growing number of adults diagnosed with colorectal cancer underscores the urgent need for innovative approaches in screening. It’s essential to eliminate obstacles and broaden the availability of screening methods for healthcare providers and patients,” said Anjee Davis, president of Fight CRC. “We hope that introducing new FDA-approved diagnostic tools, including stool-based tests like ColoSense, will help to advance access and increase screening rates, ultimately reducing the impact of late-stage colorectal cancer diagnoses.”

FDA approval of ColoSense is a significant step in making this important screening tool available to patients. Geneoscopy is working with payors, professional societies, and advocacy partners to support a commercial launch later this year or early in 2025 to ensure patients have timely access to ColoSense to support CRC screening. Geneoscopy will launch ColoSense in collaboration with Labcorp (NYSE: LH), a global leader of innovative and comprehensive laboratory services.

About ColoSense

ColoSense is intended for the qualitative detection of colorectal neoplasia-associated RNA markers and for the presence of occult hemoglobin in human stool. ColoSense is for use with the ColoSense Collection Kit, the ColoSense Test Kit, the ColoSense Software, and the following instruments: Polymedco iFOBT Analyzer; bioMérieux EMAG Nucleic Acid Extraction System; and Bio-Rad QXDx ddPCR System. ColoSense is a single-site test performed at Geneoscopy, Inc.

A positive ColoSense result may indicate the presence of colorectal cancer (CRC), advanced adenomas (AA), or serrated precancerous lesions (SPL) and should be followed by a colonoscopy. ColoSense is indicated as a screening test for adults, 45 years of age or older, who are at typical average risk for developing CRC. ColoSense is not a replacement for diagnostic colonoscopy or surveillance colonoscopy in high-risk individuals.

Results from Geneoscopy’s pivotal CRC-PREVENT trial were published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in October 2023. For more information, visit www.colosense.com.

Epredia and NovaScan Announce Intent to Enter U.S. Distribution Agreement for MarginScan™ Device for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer Detection

Avantik to Serve as Primary Distribution Partner

PORTSMOUTH, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CancerDiagnostics–Epredia, a global leader in precision cancer diagnostics and subsidiary of PHC Holdings Corporation (TSE: 6523), and NovaScan, Inc., a company that develops breakthrough technology for cancer detection and stratification, announce that they have signed a letter of intent for a U.S. exclusive commercial distribution agreement for MarginScan™, a medical device that will support physicians in real-time detection of non-melanoma skin cancer. Epredia has engaged Avantik, a company specializing in supporting diagnostic labs with their operations, with getting this new device into the hands of Mohs surgeons.

Skin cancer is the most common group of cancers diagnosed worldwide1, and it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime2. Non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) are the most common cancers in the United States, affecting more than 3 million Americans a year3. More than 20 percent of Americans are expected to develop NMSC before reaching age 70. Most surgeries for NMSC are simple excisions, which may result in removal of substantial healthy tissue around the suspected cancer.

MarginScan™ is designed to address this challenge by supporting Mohs surgery procedures for skin cancer treatment. Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS) is an operative method used to detect the presence or absence of a tumor in the margins of a surgical excision. In an MMS procedure, cancer tissue is excised in stages, then flash-frozen and assessed histologically in an onsite lab until clean margins are obtained. Previously, MMS was the only modality for skin cancer treatment that involved comprehensive margin assessment during a procedure. MarginScan™ is designed to use an electrical assessment to confirm cancer-free margins without the intraoperative histological assessment. This has the potential to allow for faster excisions that spare more healthy tissue, leading to improved outcomes for both patients and clinicians.

With this planned agreement, Epredia will serve as the primary distribution partner of MarginScan™ and will have exclusive distribution rights in the United States. Along with distribution, Epredia will be responsible for all marketing and commercial activities related to the launch and sale of MarginScan™. Epredia will work closely with Avantik to market and sell the new device to Mohs surgeons.

MarginScan™ will be the latest addition to Epredia’s world-class portfolio of precision cancer diagnostics products and services that provide a seamless end-to-end laboratory workflow, including slide scanners and printers, cryostats, tissue processors, and consumables such as slides and reagents. In addition to offering MarginScan™, Epredia will also provide consumable products that are used with the device, such as the MarginScan™ electrode and proprietary electrolytic gel used during excisions.

The two companies anticipate a 2025 U.S. launch for MarginScan™. This distribution agreement builds on a previous partnership between NovaScan and PHC Corporation, another subsidiary of PHC Holdings Corporation that is focused on the development and manufacturing of innovative medical testing devices. PHC Holdings Corporation is referred to collectively with its subsidiaries as PHC Group.

Steven Lynum, President of Epredia, said, “With more than 85 years supporting precision cancer diagnostics, we strive to continuously serve the changing needs of our customers by working with innovative companies like NovaScan to deliver the best solutions. Helping providers make faster, more accurate diagnoses and ultimately improving patient care is what makes this initiative so important.”

Sycai Medical – Early stage diagnosis of pancreatic cancer through Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence

Sycai Medical is a technological startup founded in Barcelona in 2020, born from the motivation of empowering radiologists to improve healthcare through artificial vision and big data. They develop AI-based algorithms, which helps medical professionals in the diagnosisof abdominal injuries and in the prediction of their evolution to increase early-stage cancer detection and improving the quality of life of patients with chronic diseases.

Their product Sycai Medical is an assistant, which helps radiologists to detect pancreatic cystic lesions, predicting their malignant potential and presenting similar cases to verify the diagnosis.

This kind of lesions can evolve into pancreatic cancer, the 4th cause of death by cancer in Europe with an average survival time from diagnosis of less than 5 months and currently without an efficient method or early diagnosis.

The follow-up treatment of the pancreatic cysts leads to repetitive image tests for life, due to the difficulty of predicting which ones are going to be malignant and which are staying benign. The ability of predicting their evolution is the key to increase early detection of pancreatic cancer and to optimize the follow-up treatments.

Their Artificial Intelligence and Big Data based software assists radiologists in the detection and classification of abdominal lesions on CT scans and MRIs. It also provides a prediction of the probability of each lesion to become cancer in the future, which is crucial to diagnose early-stage pancreatic cancer and to improve the life quality of patients.
