PROALT has attended BIOSPAIN 2016. This year’s event has been held from 28th to 31st September 2016 in Bilbao (Spain). PROALT participated with a booth at the exhibition area of BioSpain. PROALT also met other attendees during the business partnering and presented its business project at the Investment Forum.
PROALT presented its COLODETECT test for early diagnosis of colorectal cancer in population at risk. Colodetect test is non-invasive, low cost and easy to use for screening of large populations at risk, compared with high complexity tools (colonoscopy/sigmoidoscopy), and will achieve good detection capacity at early stages, which involve better treatment options to improve patient’s survival. Colodetect is in prototype validation phase.
PROALT also presented its monoclonal antibody αCDH17 to companies interested to partner with PROALT for future development. Monoclonal antibody αCDH17 has been developed and patented by PROALT for inhibition/treatment of liver metastases from colorectal cancer. This monoclonal antibody αCDH17 is in preclinical phase.
Finally, PROALT showed its catalog of products, recombinant proteins and antibodies for research, as well as its contract research services for biopharmaceutical companies and research centers.
