Ovarian Cancer Is Deadly! Early Detection Is Key!

Here's the problem with ovarian cancer, by the time it's detected (in 70% of cases), it's in its advanced stages. It's a highly deadly disease.

Now MabCure, Inc. says that it has developed a simple blood test that will detect the disease. The results of the preliminary studies are astounding!

This is a critical test: If ovarian cancer is detected early, it's curable!

Researchers have found a way to target ovarian tumors!

How the Blood Test Works to Detect Ovarian Cancer...

MabCure's test designed monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) (immune system proteins), to target ovarian tumors specifically.

In their study, it was found that healthy women who participated threw no "false positives," which means this simple blood test is extremely accurate in detecting ovarian cancer. Not only that, but the test has the ability to differentiate between benign tumors and cancer!

This is a very important finding!

Who needs this???
Who needs this???

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks...

This blood test is so accurate that it successfully identified 16 of 17 women who had ovarian cancer in preliminary studies. 

Amnon Gonenne, CEO of MabCure, said the blood test "...has the potential to save thousands of lives and reduce the need for unnecessary surgery..."

MabCure's blood test is currently undergoing clinical trials in high-risk patients in Thailand. Let's hope that they bring it to market soon!
