Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF) (http://www.Todosmedical.com) today announced positive results from a clinical trial completed at CGH Hospital in Singapore. The trial related to the Company’s proprietary TM-B1 Assay for breast cancer screening, initiated in July 2016. The trial was prospective, two arms, enrolling 257 female patients over a period of over 2 years. The study was focused primarily on subjects of Asian descent, a population in which women have the highest rate of dense breast tissue. In patients with dense breasts, mammograms typically result in inconclusive results, leading patients to be referred for additional invasive tests, such as biopsy.
The results of the TM-B1 trial presented a high degree of accuracy of more than 80% with respect to identifying healthy and benign versus malignant breast tumor in women tested. The current standard of care is estimated to range from 50% accuracy in women with dense breasts and an accuracy rate of 75% in the standard population. TM-B1 results were compared against gold standard breast cancer screening methods, such as mammography, ultrasound and biopsy. As a result of this data, we are evaluating partnering opportunities in Asia.
“This trial is an important step as we further refine our initial intended use statements for commercial launch and begin to provide valuable information to physicians so that they may make better decisions with regards to management of patients with dense breasts,” said Dr. Herman Weiss, Chief Executive Officer of Todos Medical. “We believe that our target of bringing the TM-B1 blood test to be accepted as a standard of care test for general breast cancer screening worldwide remains the long-term goal for Todos. We are pleased with the results as they demonstrate TM-B1’s accuracy in the Asian population, where it is estimated that women have the highest rate of dense breast tissue. These results are comparable to those we received in our Israeli trials for the same test and provides a strong support for the further development of our TBIA platform in other cancer indications, like our TM-C1 for colon cancer detection.”
