HiloProbe is a biotechnology company founded 2016. The founders consist of a group of scientists, who have collaborated for more than 15 years in an academic setting, and produced high quality original research focusing on the development of clinically useful biomarkers for colorectal cancer.
The research has been focused on analysis of the regional lymph nodes in the abdomen surrounding the primary tumor in the colon. The reason is that the lymph node is the first site where metastasizing cancer cells will occur. We have now discovered a limited number of biomarkers that, when analyzed together, identify cancer cells in the lymph node and grade cancer cell aggressiveness i.e. their propensity to metastasize to distant sites. A product (ColoNode®) based on biomarker mRNA analysis is under development. The aim is to bring ColoNode® to the market to save people´s lives and aid in the development of more efficient treatment of colorectal cancer.
We will give more cancer patients the opportunity to live.
