DRG International to exhibit at Medlab Dubai 2017

DRG’s CA 72-4 ELISA Kit (EIA-5071), which uses antibodies licensed from the NIH, has been used in a recent study conducted by Winthrop University. The study used the DRG CA 72-4 ELISA Kit (EIA-5071) to explore the expression of CA72-4 compared to current FDA-approved tumor markers in patients with a variety of metastatic cancers during the course of treatment. This study was presented at the 2017 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium and will also be a featured poster at the Medlab Singapore Exhibition from April 3 – 5, 2017. You can find a link to the poster here.

The tumor-associated glycoprotein 72 (TAG-72) is a 48 kD mucine-like glycoprotein
complex that has been identified with the monoclonal murine antibody B72.3. Cancer antigen 72-4 (CA72-4) is an antigenic determinant of the TAG-72 glycoprotein which is recognized by B72.3 and CC-49 monoclonal antibodies. CA72-4 has been found to be elevated in a variety of human adenocarcinomas, with reported sensitivities of up 50% and overall specificity of over 95% and correlate with disease activity.

This study demonstrates that the DRG CA72-4 ELISA assay can be readily performed in a hospital laboratory and may serve as a useful adjunct to conventional tumor markers in the follow-up of a variety of metastatic cancers.

The DRG CA 72-4 ELISA Kit (EIA-5071) is CE marked and is for Research Use Only in the United States of America. For all sales inquiries, please contact Mr. Michael Martini at +1-973-564-7555 Ext. 204.
