- Largest ever study of midkine in healthy volunteers – 574 individuals;
- Results are pivotal in any regulatory submission for midkine diagnostics;
- Elevated midkine predictive of serious illness in a small group of asymptomatic outliers.
SYDNEY, Wednesday 18 December 2013: Cellmid Limited (ASX:CDY) has completed its two year long CK3000 program investigating normal serum concentrations of midkine (MK) in the largest ever study of healthy volunteers involving 574 individuals.
The study results confirmed interim findings of “healthy” MK levels in a statistically meaningful population size and provided further insights into a small group of ‘outliers’, asymptomatic individuals presenting with elevated MK levels. The results are expected to be pivotal in future regulatory submission for stand alone midkine diagnostic tests for monitoring wellness, disease recurrence or treatment efficacy in any cancer.
