READ: VolitionRx closes 1Q with $12M in cash while studying Nu.Q blood test as potential coronavirus diagnostic tool

Volition applies its Nucleosomics platform through its subsidiaries to develop simple, cost-effective blood tests to help diagnose a range of cancers and other diseases.

The firm recently shared preliminary results from a study on how its Nu.Q blood test can be used as a diagnostic or prognostic tool in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The company said a recent proof of concept study involving 34 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 positive subjects and 50 control subjects revealed that nucleosomes were highly elevated in the PCR positive subjects.

Preliminary study results demonstrated an Area Under the Curve (AUC) for a single Nu.Q assay of 98.7% for PCR positive COVID versus control subjects with a sensitivity of 100% at 94% specificity.

A second Nu.Q assay also showed promising results with an AUC of 86.2%.

Volition said it plans to utilize the results of this trial and other ongoing studies to further its aim of developing a clinically useful product to help in the battle against the COVID-19 global pandemic and potentially other diseases.
