About Luven Diagnostic ICO
The LUVEN screening test method created by scientist of our company detects cancer at its early stages with the accuracy of up to 96% only comparable to biopsy. None of the existing diagnostic techniques has such a high diagnostic accuracy.
The LUVEN technology allows to diagnose the disease at its early stages, thus, giving a chance to thousands of people to prevent its further development.
For more than 20 years the Ukrainian scientists have been developing a diagnostic method based on cyto-morphological and cyto-biophysical properties of the buccal epithelial cells. In 2004 at Fenix Cancer Research Center, they continued their research and, finally, came up and implemented an experimental method. A new method of biomaterial analysis allowed to establish a cancer diagnosis at its early stages and to assess predisposition to cancer. A great success in this medical field opened a door to new possibilities,including cancer prevention and therapy. The longstanding scientific research in this field culminated in development of The Luven diagnostic system.
Why is it critical to detect cancer in its early stage?
Around 10 mln people worldwide are annually diagnosed with cancer, with every third patient dying from it. One of the main reasons of such a high mortality rate is late diagnosis.
According to statistics:
- after treatment in stage 1 cancer — around 93% of patients survive;
- stage 2 cancer — around 75% survive;
- stage 3 cancer — 55% survive;
- stage 4 cancer — only 13% survive;
This is why one should get a check-up as often as possible, thus preventing the disease progression.
Regardless of the rapid development of modern medicine and biology cancer, annually, takes millions of human lives. One cancer patient, worldwide, dies from this disease every 30 seconds.
The key to successful cancer treatment is early diagnosis.
The development of this method started in early 1983 at the research institute, chair for genetics. Based on the cellular theory by Rudolf Vichow, a team of scientists was working on a diagnostic method and studying buccal cells. Ms. Galina Shchukina, a genetic scientist and cytologist, was at the head of the scientific research. She conducted an in-depth study of scientific papers describing a new biophysical concept of the gene activity regulation based on the role of relationship between homologous chromosomes and genome. Together with Mr. Alexander Shchukin, a nuclear physicist, they invented an ion trap allowing to estimate bioelectric charge of cells. Further research and studies of this concept laid the basis for a new diagnostic method born in 2004, according to which any changes in the human body reflect on cells, including buccal epithelial cells. It was the first milestone in the developm
