Ocean Ridge Contributes to Discovery of Biomarkers of Early-Stage Pancreatic Cancer

Ocean Ridge Biosciences (ORB) is honored to announce its contribution to a recently published scientific research article titled “Novel blood-based microRNA biomarker panel for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer". Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer, in large part because the disease usually goes undetected until it has spread beyond the pancreas. Early detection of the disease is associated with a much greater probability of survival; therefore, a diagnostic test sensitive enough to detect the cancer at an early stage using noninvasive methods (like blood collection) would be extremely valuable to the medical community.
