bioAffinity reports on a potential therapeutic approach that kills cancer cells without harm to normal cells
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Dec. 1, 2022 – bioAffinity Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIAF; BIAFW), a biotechnology company addressing the need for noninvasive diagnosis of early-stage cancer and diseases of the lung and targeted cancer treatment, today announced that David Elzi, Ph.D., bioAffinity Vice President of Research, will discuss his research into a possible mechanism by which the knockdown of two genes kills cancer cells with little or no effect on normal cells at Cell Bio, a joint meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 3-7, 2022. Dr. Elzi’s research supports the Company’s development of broad-spectrum cancer therapeutics.
Dr. Elzi will present a poster titled “Reassessing Cobalamin Requirements in Cell Culture” on Monday, Dec. 5, 2022, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. EST at the Walter E. Reed Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
“bioAffinity’s research is important in better understanding the foundation of our therapeutic platforms as it examines one potential mechanism for how silencing the genes CD320 and LRP2 together kills cancer cells but leaves normal cells unharmed,” Dr. Elzi said.
“We previously reported on the Company’s design and use of siRNAs to kill multiple cancers at the cellular level, including prostate, lung, breast, brain, and skin cancers, without harm to normal cells,” said bioAffinity President and CEO Maria Zannes. “We have reported on how to deliver the potential therapy. Dr. Elzi’s recent research that will be presented next week at Cell Bio looks at why it works.”
Cell Bio 2022, the joint meeting of the ASCB and EMBO, will showcase a diverse global community of the brightest minds in cell biology in person, Dec. 3-7, 2022, in Washington, D.C. The unique meeting focuses on cell biology as the fundamental basis of biology as well as sessions on emerging interdisciplinary topics.
