NuQ-M: To detect cancer by detecting nucleosomes containing modified histones, the proteins that package and order DNA into nucleosomes.
Mr Cameron Reynolds, CEO, VolitionRX, says, "We're delighted that we have raised over $1 million, which will allow us to begin clinical trials of our tests, both in-house and in independent external trials in multiple centers across Europe and the rest of the world. We are very encouraged by the promising results we've seen in initial validations of our NuQ tests and are hopeful that we'll see similarly good results in larger clinical trials."
In April 2012, Belgian Volition, VolitionRX's research and development subsidiary for Nucleosomics, moved into a new office and lab space. The new, much larger, space comprises an office, meeting room and a laboratory, and is a standalone facility, which is required for ISO certification and European and FDA approvals.
