While pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) and Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA) are making significant strides in cancer treatment, the importance of early detection cannot be overlooked. Mainz Biomed NV (NASDAQ: MYNZ), a molecular genetics diagnostic company specializing in early cancer detection, has recently taken a major step in its mission to provide access to diagnostic tests globally, giving individuals a life-changing advantage in their battle against cancer.
Mainz Biomed Partners with Bioclinica to Launch ColoAlert® in Romania
Mainz Biomed has announced that it will be introducing its flagship product, ColoAlert®, in Romania through a strategic partnership with Bioclinica, a leading healthcare provider in the country. This collaboration will bring an effective and user-friendly at-home colorectal cancer test to the Romanian population, which has one of the highest incidence rates of colorectal cancer in Europe and currently lacks a national screening program. With a potential market of 9.2 million tests per year, as there are 1.6 million individuals aged 40 to 49, 6.1 million aged 50 to 74, and 1.5 million aged over 75, ColoAlert® has significant market potential. Leveraging Bioclinica’s expertise and extensive network, this test will become readily available to a large portion of the Romanian population.
Europeans account for just one-tenth of the global population but make up a quarter of all annual cancer cases worldwide. Colorectal cancer is the second most fatal cancer in Europe, and Mainz Biomed’s ColoAlert® is a significant step toward addressing this challenge.
Innovation in Diagnosis and Treatment Crucial in the Fight Against Cancer
In its continuous effort to combat cancer, Pfizer Inc recently acquired Seagen, a leading biological drug developer, for $43 billion. This acquisition allows Pfizer to expand its reach in innovative cancer treatments, adding therapies for lymph node, urinary tract, and colorectal cancers to its portfolio. Additionally, Pfizer has deepened its partnership with Erasca, aiming to combine two complementary drugs to tackle pancreatic and colorectal cancer. As mRNA COVID-19 vaccines continue to revolutionize medicine and save lives, Pfizer and Moderna are poised to conquer cancer next.
