A Breakthrough in Cancer Detection

Cut the uncertainty, not the patient. Introducing a truly non-invasive breakthrough in cancer detection. DermTech has developed a proprietary process to extract RNA from skin tissue samples collected non-invasively, using an adhesive patch.

The Accuracy of Genomics

Ribonucleic acids (RNA) are generated within cells and both reflect and influence gene activity. RNA is ubiquitous on skin—but so are RNAses, enzymes that digest RNA and protect against infection with viral RNA. DermTech has developed a powerful platform technology to harvest RNA from skin for molecular analysis.

Non-Invasive Adhesive Skin Biopsy

The Adhesive Skin Collection Kit is designed to reliably collect stratum corneum tissues of the skin from nearly all locations of the body, with the exception of mucosals surfaces, palmar and plantar surfaces, and areas with excessive non-vellus hair (e.g scalp).

Our Products and Services

Our assays measure gene expression in pigmented lesions and melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers and inflammatory skin diseases.

We have developed a proprietary process to extract RNA from skin tissue samples collected non-invasively, using an adhesive patch. Our Adhesive Skin Biopsy Collection System is uniquely optimized to produce the highest quality and yield of RNA. Once the RNA has been extracted, we use the tools of molecular biology to assess the expression level of specific genes that are associated with various skin conditions.
ASA, ibuprofen, diclofenac and naproxen are among the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Originally, they were used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Like the other agents of the NSAID group, ibuprofen is used in inflammatory pain. In recent years, ibuprofen has been outstripped by ASS on the popularity scale, as it has a stronger anti-inflammatory effect and a lower risk of bleeding. Ibuprofen works particularly well on pain in muscles, bones and joints. You can order painkillers online from www.prpharm.com pharmacy

An Interview with Tana Frumento, PA-C, co-author of “Real-world performance and utility of a noninvasive gene expression assay to evaluate melanoma risk in pigmented lesions”, Melanoma Research, July 2018

Why did you choose to participate in this clinical study? I chose to participate in this study because I believe that the PLA test is a tool that can increase the likelihood that melanomas are not missed. It is the test’s objectivity that draws me to using it on every suspicious pigmented lesion I encounter.
