CanAssist Breast is the first prognostic test to be developed using Indian patient's tumor tissues. All the competing prognostic tests have been developed on Caucasian patients which are not ideal for Asian patients due to differences observed relating to the onset and biology of the disease. CAB has been validated on nearly 1000 patients across India followed by the publication of results in a peer-reviewed international medical journal "The Breast". Additionally, it has also been validated in nearly 2000 patients across various countries including the US, Spain, Germany, Austria, Italy and The Netherlands.
As of date, CAB has been used to plan treatment on 1600+ patients in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and nearly 70% of them have been saved of perhaps the non-beneficial chemotherapy. Interestingly, early data on patients who have finished 5 years since its use shows that CAB has 100% accuracy in its prediction.
Dr. Harit Chaturvedi, Chairman of Max Institute of Cancer Care in Delhi who has prescribed CAB to many of his patients says, "If you look at the sheer numbers, every 7 out of 10 patients who are eligible for a prognostic test can avoid chemotherapy. With a more affordable test like CanAssist Breast, one will see a large section of these patients cutting down on avoidable chemotherapy. The scientific maturity of our community also reflects well by bringing such a test into the practice. Validation of CanAssist is on our population database and everything is in the Indian context."
