DECODE

LAB

GOAL

Detects if cancer relapses or determines whether it is progressing

Decode Lab is a new comprehensive patient monitoring solution that can help you reach the highest levels of clinical excellence. Simple, reliable, reproducible, it can specifically detect Progastrin in the blood of patient having a cancer.

APPROACH

Follow-up and Confirmatory diagnostic

DECODE Lab easy and efficient tool to follow up treatment:

  • Check the efficiency of treatment after therapy
  • Check relapses

DECODE Lab is also a confirmatory test for patient with potential cancer when other diagnostic tests have borderline results, It is an aid for clinical decision.

PROGASTRIN

A specific biomarker of Cancer

Progastrin is a pro-hormone that is processed in gastrin, an hormone that is secreted during digestion by specific cells of the stomach, that stimulates the normal secretion of gastric acid. In these physiological conditions Progastrin is almost exclusively present inside these specific stomach cells.

However, in tumors, cancer cells lack the enzymes required to process Progastrin to gastrin, leading to the secretion by cancer cells.

Reliable, Simple, Robust
Use of common blood samples

DECODE LAB test is based on the ELISA technic that is the most reliable and the most routinely used assay to detect biomarker on the blood.

ELISA is a test that combines the specificity of antibodies with the sensitivity of simple enzyme assays, by using antibodies coupled to an easily-assayed enzyme. A color change shows the presence of the biomarker

FOUNDATION

The foundation will be created by ECS-Screening for physicians and managed by the physicians themselves.
To be part of the DECODE Lab Foundation, you just have to agree to share DECODE Lab test data. No contribution is required.

1. When a physician use DECODE Lab to screen or to follow-up a patient by a hospital doctor, he records the patient's anonymised data in the Foundation's Data Base.

2. The data base is continuously implemented new cases of patients around the world and the data base will cluster the information from patients with the same profile.

3. The physician receives information on all cases with the same profile with an analysis of the type of therapeutic protocol used and the results obtained if available.

4. If requested, the data base will connect directly the physician with the physicians in charge of the similar cases all over the world to facilitate discussion.

The more the database will be implemented, the more physicians will have patient cases to compare with their own available.
Financing of research projects for members of the Community
  • The anonymized and analyzed clinical information will be sold to private companies
  • The revenues will finance the scientific research of the members of the Foundation and the operation functioning of the data base
  • Access ECS-Screening Foundation database: only for scientific research in collaboration with other members of the Foundation
  • Financial profit: no financial profit for ECS Screening from the Foundation
