bioAffinity Technologies Announces Award of Therapeutic Patent for Treatment of Cancer
Indian Patent Office Grants Patent Related to Porphyrin Compounds for Targeted Cancer Treatment
SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- bioAffinity Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: BIAF; BIAFW), a biotechnology company focused on the need for noninvasive, accurate tests for the detection of early-stage cancer and lung disease, today announced that India’s Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks has issued a Certificate of Grant of Patent to bioAffinity subsidiary OncoSelect Therapeutics, LLC for its compositions and methods to treat cancer using chemotherapeutic agents conjugated to porphyrins, resulting in targeted delivery of the drugs.
The Indian patent, titled “Porphyrin Compounds and Compositions Useful for Treating Cancer” is an important addition to bioAffinity Technologies’ patent portfolio, which includes 16 awarded U.S. and foreign patents and 23 pending patent applications related to its porphyrin-based diagnostic platform and cancer treatment therapeutics.
“India’s patent is an acknowledgement of the value of our ongoing research, development and commercialization of porphyrin-based diagnostics and targeted treatments for lung cancer and other diseases,” bioAffinity Technologies’ President and CEO Maria Zannes said. “We are committed to improving the outcome for cancer patients around the world, beginning with lung cancer, the deadliest cancer killer. Strong intellectual property protection for our innovative science benefits not only patients in need of treatment and their physicians, but also our research team and our shareholders as well.”
bioAffinity Technologies’ first product, CyPath® Lung, is a porphyrin-based diagnostic test for early-stage lung cancer. Physicians use CyPath® Lung for patients at high risk for developing lung cancer, often after recommended screening reveals indeterminate pulmonary lung nodules that may or may not be malignant. CyPath® Lung is a noninvasive test that uses advanced flow cytometry and artificial intelligence to differentiate patients with cancer from those who do not have the disease.
