Cancer.im has been positioning itself to have the first mover advantage by becoming the primary resource on the Web that people affected by cancer will turn to in order to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. Members can use Cancer.im to:
• Create and mobilize their own Patient Support Network;
• Learn from the wisdom of cancer survivors;
• Research all aspects of cancer;
• Organize their medical records, insurance, and research;
• Create a customized strategy based on their educated beliefs, values and resources;
• To create a proactive cancer prevention strategy.
Cancer.im was founded by people who have firsthand experience with cancer. The network continues to grow thanks to individuals who continually donate their time, resources and experiences to help cancer patients navigate the obstacles they face. Our driving principles to create an internet-based support system are based on clinical data which has shown that cancer patients who have an active support network live longer than cancer patients who do not and increasing a cancer patient’s quality of life directly lowers the incidence of morbidity.
The Cancer.im social network has the potential of changing the way in which patients view and manage their disease, thus allowing them to take back control and being more proactive in their treatment decisions.
Cancer.im is also seeking new cancer researchers who wish to leverage its intellectual property and social network platform for the purpose of creating new distribution and engagement channels. Books on cancer have been written and the Company has gathered a large data base of research and knowledge.
Through its experience-based search engine and next-generation technology, Cancer.im’s goal is to become the primary resource on the web for people affected by cancer, for the purpose of making a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.
The Company is continuing to expand the use and features of the technologies in its Social Network, software, and business platform.
Cancer.im Inc. signed an exclusive agreement to commercialize a device that analyzes a small amount of urine for markers that are found in breast and other forms of cancer. This device and the use of biomarkers allow for rapid, point-of-care tests for early screening of cancer that noninvasively monitors levels of pteridine biomarkers in urine. Its unique design delivers superior sensitivity to mass spectrometry at a fraction of the cost of comparable analytical platforms. There are many other advantages to this technology.
New frontiers for health care
Dr. Kevin Buckman MD, Chief Medical Officer of Cancer.im, Inc., authored a Best Selling Book on Breast Cancer called Find and Stop Breast Cancer. He states, “The influential U.S. Preventive Services Task suggests not doing a first mammogram until age 50. This is a real dilemma for women under 50 and for those who want a noninvasive means of breast cancer screening.” Dr. Buckman continues, “Screening with sensitive biomarkers may have advantages over expensive imaging technologies such as CT Scan, x rays, PET scans, mammograms, ultrasounds and other tests. Urine biomarkers for Cancer Detection is a non-invasive cancer test that is rapid. There is a need to find a new way to discover breast cancer at all stages and to have new ways to monitor cancer treatment.”
Further clinical studies are needed and the Company will need to attain regulatory approval before the device and tests can be used clinically.
Medical Advisory Board and Technical Advisors
To facilitate the above activities, the Company has been meeting with Doctors and other experts with the bodies of knowledge needed to make the Company’s goals and business ventures successful. The Company will be announcing these new members of its team over the next sixty days.
“The hard work and efforts of the management team of the Company is finally coming to fruition” states Fred Schiemann, CEO of Viratech Corp.
