VolitionRX Limited Intellectual Property Update: New Patent Filed


12/22/2011 10:03:54 AM

SINGAPORE, Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- VolitionRX Limited (VNRX.OB), a life sciences company focused on developing blood-based diagnostic tests, is pleased to announce that it has filed a further patent application building on its Nucleosomics technology platform.

VolitionRX has developed methods to detect nucleosome adducts of cancer origin which are circulating in the blood of cancer patients and has filed a patent application covering both the use of these adducts as biomarkers and the methods for their detection. The new patent application, "Method For Detecting Nucleosome Adducts" [US 61/568,090] was filed on December 7, 2011. The existence of these nucleosome adducts was previously unknown.

Jake Micallef, Chief Scientific Officer of Belgian Volition says, "We have high hopes that these advances will find application in the diagnosis of certain cancers, particularly cancers whose growth is steroid dependent."

Cameron Reynolds, CEO of VolitionRX says, "Our scientific team is carrying out work on two Nucleosomics fronts at present: continuing internal validations of our technology on blood samples from cancer and non-cancer patients; and finding other novel applications for Nucleosomics. We are very excited that our team has discovered another promising potential diagnostic application from our Nucleosomics patent estate."
