Cleo’s Biomarker Detection Tech for Ovarian Cancer is a Game Changer for Women, CEO Says

Cleo Diagnostics (ASX:COV) CEO Richard Allman says the company’s patented blood test technology will enable the early diagnosis of ovarian cancer and increase the cancer survival rate for women.

“Ovarian cancer, like most solid tumors, can be very successfully treated with surgery if it’s caught early,” he said. “The success rate for surgery for Stage 1 ovarian cancer is over 90 percent. And one of the things that we are very excited about is that our prototype test data for early stage cancer is extremely promising. And we are hoping that this technology will be a game changer for women.”

As the company moves toward commercialisation of its technology, Allman said it is important to compare Cleo’s products with the existing gold standard methods through clinical studies.


“Our prototype test currently has a sensitivity and specificity of a little over 95 percent, which is significantly higher than anything else in the marketplace at the moment,” he said. “It has an accuracy for detecting early stage cancer (in excess) of 80 percent. And it’s (really) those combinations of figures which is driving our excitement and pushing us to bring this to market as quickly as possible.”

A recent peer review validates Cleo’s technology and commercial strategy, targeting the surgical triage market where accurate and early cancer identification is critical.
