Croissy-Beaubourg and Montpellier, March 11, 2014 - Theradiag (ISIN: FR0004197747, Ticker: ALTER), a company specializing in theranostics and in vitro diagnostics, is proud to announce that a scientific paper confirming the relevance of its research on circulating microRNAs in cancer has been published in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncolog[1], one of the review journals of Nature Publishing Group. Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology is the third most read journal in the field of oncology.

Heidi Schwarzenbach et al. in « Clinical relevance of circulating cell-free microRNAs in cancer [2] conducted a review of over a hundred articles on microRNAs published since 1993. According to their analysis « detection of levels of microRNAs in blood plasma and serum has the potential for earlier cancer diagnosis and to predict prognosis and response to therapy ». These findings apply to a variety of cancers (lung, breast, gynaecological, prostate, and gastrointestinal cancers). The authors also point out the importance of early diagnosis and monitoring of treatment as a key factor of efficient patient care.

"This review, in a journal of such scientific reputation, highlights the potential value of circulating microRNAs for the management of cancers that are complex to diagnose and to treat, and more generally to predict response to chemotherapy treatments. Theradiag is the only French company with a diagnostics and theranostics microRNA platform" comments Michel Finance, CEO of Theradiag.

Theradiag develops theranostics tests based on microRNAs for AIDS and cancer. In 2013, the company notably entered into a partnership agreement with the Cancer Institute of Montpellier to develop theranostics tools in rectal cancer.
