Volition Veterinary Presents Two Posters at 2021 Veterinary Cancer Society Conference



Dr. Tom butera, President and CEO of Volition Veterinary Diagnostics Development, LLC said, “be able to use the Nu.Q® Testing not only to screen for cancer and help identify disease earlier, but also to monitor disease progression as an early indication that a dog is coming out of remission, will meet a real unmet need in the market. We expect this disease surveillance product to be our second Nu.Q® Veterinary product. We believe this product has significant potential to help improve treatment and quality of life for dogs, while providing additional valuable information to inform the clinical decision-making process for the veterinarian and animal owner. While the veterinary business team has been busy negotiating global licensing and distribution agreements, I would like to salute the hard work and joint research efforts of the Texas A&M University and the Volition team; we are delighted to present these two studies at the world’s largest conference in veterinary oncology. “

“The data shows that Nu.Q® The veterinarian may serve as a more sensitive measure of both minimal residual disease and remission and could be a useful surveillance test for dogs with cancer. Given Nu.Q® is a simple blood test, it would be incredibly useful in the clinic and in the general veterinarian’s office, ”said Dr. Heather Wilson-Robles, teacher at Texas A&M University, Medical Director of Volition Veterinary Diagnostics Development LLC and President of VCS.

Dr Robles added: “The second poster reports our first study using Nu.Q® Capture, Volition’s enrichment tool, to better understand circulating nucleosome types and their genomic patterns in the plasma of dogs with lymphoma. It was exciting to see that once again, animal data show results similar to human studies in that patients with canine lymphoma have circulating nucleosomes lacking in binding DNA (i.e. say shorter nucleosomes) which are not detected in the plasma of healthy dogs and that Nu.Q® Capture is able to enrich the nucleosomes associated with canine cancer in the plasma of patients with lymphoma. We look forward to expanding our research in this area. ”

About Volition

Volition is a multinational epigenetics company that applies its Nucleosomics â„¢ platform across its subsidiaries to develop simple, easy-to-use and cost-effective blood tests to help diagnose and monitor a range of life-changing diseases, including certain cancers and diseases associated with NETosis such as sepsis and COVID-19. Early diagnosis and monitoring have the potential to not only prolong the life of patients, but also improve their quality of life. The tests are based on the science of Nucleosome â„¢, which is the practice of identifying and measuring nucleosomes in the bloodstream or other body fluids – an indication that disease is present. Volition mainly focuses on human diagnostics and surveillance, but also has a subsidiary focused on animal diagnostics and surveillance.

Volition’s research and development activities focus on Belgium, with a small laboratory at California and additional offices at Texas, London and Singapore, as the company focuses on bringing its diagnostic and disease surveillance products to market.
