ITUS will Present Artificial Intelligence Powered Early Cancer Detection Technology at the Keystone Symposia Conference - Cancer Immunotherapy: Combinations
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ITUS Corporation (NASDAQ: ITUS), today announced that its presentation titled, "The coupling of MDSCs with a computational analytic method to detect solid tumors," has been accepted for presentation at the Keystone Symposia Conference - Cancer Immunotherapy: Combinations in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells, or MDSCs, are a key group of white blood cells that form the foundation for ITUS' liquid biopsy technology.
The presentation will focus on ITUS' proprietary Cchek™ platform which utilizes immuno-profiling via Flow Cytometry and Artificial Intelligence to enable the detection of solid tumors from a blood sample.
"The idea of finding cancer in a tube of blood is a very intriguing concept, that has generated tremendous interest from the scientific and investment community. ITUS is at the forefront of research in this field, and we are pleased to be presenting our work at this prestigious Keystone Symposium. As we continue to publicize our progress and eventually publish our data, we hope to increase the profile of our research program in this field," stated Dr. Amit Kumar, President and CEO of ITUS Corporation.
The symposium will be held on March 23-27, 2018, and will be attended by experts in the field of immunotherapy from across the world. All abstracts can be viewed by registered attendees beginning February 23, 2018. To receive a copy of the presentation, please email your request to Keystone-2018@ITUScorp.com after March 24, 2018 and include your name, title, and contact information.
Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology
Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology (www.keystonesymposia.org) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Silverthorne, Colorado, USA that convenes open, peer-reviewed conferences across a broad range of the life sciences. Scientific content for each conference is organized by volunteer scientists who are experts in their respective fields and who also select program speakers, with guidelines from Keystone Symposia to encourage fresh and diverse participation. The conference Cancer Immunotherapy: Combinations (www.keystonesymposia.org/18C5) will specifically cover the most critical topics regarding how patients with cancer will receive immunotherapy as part of their treatment regimen. This meeting is also aimed to help address the gaps in knowledge of how and when to combine therapies, and how to integrate immunotherapy into current standard-of-care or novel targeted therapy approaches – both preclinical and clinical.
ITUS, a cancer-focused biotechnology company, is harnessing the body's immune system in the fight against cancer. Its wholly owned subsidiary, Anixa Diagnostics Corporation, is developing the CchekTM platform, a series of non-invasive blood tests for the early detection of solid tumor based cancers, which is based on the body's immunological response to the presence of a malignancy. Its majority owned subsidiary, Certainty Therapeutics, Inc., is developing CAR-T based immuno-therapy drugs which genetically engineer a patient's own immune cells to fight cancer. ITUS also continually examines emerging technologies in complementary or related fields for further development and commercialization. Additional information is available at www.ITUScorp.com.
