Beating Cancer: Medtech Startups to Share Plans with Investors and Strategic Partners at Emerging Medtech Summit

Posted by Life Science Intelligence on Aug 6, 2019 7:25:27 AM

Early-stage medtech companies Quantason, CivaTech Oncology, Navigation Sciences, MagForce and ChemoTech are going after Cancer in big ways.  

Identifying cancer and treating it in its earliest stages is one of the greatest challenges facing our healthcare system. Early detection and treatment of cancer is linked to the best clinical outcomes in terms of overall survival and treatment success. To that end, many pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and medical device developers are committed to addressing the global burden of cancer. Recent statistics from the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated that there 17 million incident cases of cancer and 9.5 million deaths attributable to cancer globally in 2018. Global forecasts suggest that the burden of cancer will only grow despite current efforts to address the disease. There is still much work to be done if we are to successfully “beat cancer”. While pharmaceuticals, or chemotherapy, often come to mind when people think of how cancer is treated, the reality is that cancer treatment is a complex process that integrates multiple diagnostics and therapeutic options.
