Seoul Viosys to Develop a Cancer Diagnosis Technology for Companion Animals with Violeds Technology

Share

Seoul Viosys (KOSDAQ: 092190), a leading compound semiconductor solution provider, announced that it has developed an advanced concept technology for early diagnosis of cancer in companion animals with its ultraviolet LED Violeds technology through clinical testing conducted by scientists at the University of Ulsan, based in South Korea.

According to Seoul Viosys’ research team, companion animals have a high incidence of cancer as humans, but it has difficulty in early diagnosis of cancer. So Seoul Viosys is in the process of developing a technology that can be applied not only in animals but also in human cancer diagnosis. The early cancer diagnosis method using Violeds light provides a profound study results to show significantly higher sensitivity in detecting cancer than the conventional diagnosis methods and enable to detect all incident cancers.

Seoul Viosys conducted comparative experiments with blood from healthy dogs and from cancer diseased dogs using a biomarker that can be easily collected in this clinical test. As a result, it’s confirmed that cancer diagnosis is possible by only one drop of blood. Seoul Viosys already applied for number of related patents.

Reactive Oxygen Species, ROS caused by various exogenous and endogenous factors damaged to DNA in cells and it can be pathological basis for cancer when this DNA is not repaired in a timely manner. Even though level of DNA damage on cancer cells due to oxidative stress is higher than healthy cells, the difference between the two results is small and it’s difficult to distinguish perfectly. However, Violeds technology provides the advantage that can be able to detect this delicate difference.

“Through the results of the pre-clinical testing with comet assay, an uncomplicated and sensitive technique for the detection of DNA damage at the level of the individual mononuclear cell, by research group of Ulsan University, Seoul Viosys demonstrates that Violeds technology has the performance for significantly high level of 95% sensitivity in detecting cancer for companion animals, but improvement for specificity is needed,” said research team at Seoul Viosys.

“If we achieve the improved level of specificity in the future, we will be able to make a positive contribution to a quantum jump in medical technology by enabling early cancer diagnosis with about a tenth price compared to conventional test kits. Seoul Viosys also expects this technology to be used for human cancer diagnosis in the future and looks for relevant and suitable research partners to achieve significant specificity,” added the team.

*Light and Violeds

Circadian rhythms as an internal clock that governs the body’s hormone levels and other biological processes such as sleep, wake, and eliminating waste from the body are based on a 24-hour cycle. It is based on natural sunlight, under which all animals and plants on the earth have evolved over 3.9 billion years, being with the beginning of the Earth 4.6 billion years ago. Seoul Viosys has recently launched air purifiers with Violeds light technology proven to sterilize various harmful bacteria and variants of coronavirus. Tracking traces of light is difficult, but if you can bend the light around the Earth, it will orbit 7.5 times per second. Also, it takes 8 minutes for light to reach Earth from the Sun, and hundreds of millions of years from distant galaxies. It is unprecedented that this light may also be used in cancer diagnosis.
