VisionGate® is a commercial stage company focused on dramatically improving the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. The Company has a comprehensive offering that includes both a diagnostic platform to accurately detect lung cancer across all stages as well as a chemoprevention drug to treat dysplasia, or pre-cancerous cells, of the lung. LuCED®, its diagnostic test, is a physician-ordered, noninvasive sputum test with exquisite sensitivity and specificity across all lung cancer types and stages. LuCED is processed on the Company’s proprietary, fully automated cell imaging platform, the Cell-CT®, which computes 3D cell images with sub-micron resolution and automatically identifies abnormal cells. LuCED’s ability to detect lung cancer of all types and in all stages, including dysplasia, makes it a perfect companion to the Company’s chemoprevention therapy, which demonstrated a 40% reduction in dysplasia in a successful Phase II National Cancer Institute-sponsored trial. With the combination of LuCED, a novel therapeutic and 131 issued patents worldwide, VisionGate expects to play a leading role in the battle against the world’s number one cancer killer.
