It is our goal to reach an even larger audience of medical professionals and to help them understand how EarlyCDT-Lung can help in the diagnosis of lung cancer at its earliest stages in many cases before the onset of lung cancer symptoms.
De Soto, Kans. (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Oncimmune® (USA) LLC, creator of EarlyCDT®-Lung, a simple blood test that aids physicians in the risk assessment and early detection of lung cancer, announces the launch of their new and improved corporate website, EarlyCDT-Lung.com. Designed for medical professionals, the site has already caught the attention of a growing number of physicians seeking information on the latest developments in early lung cancer detection.
Headquartered in De Soto, Kansas, Oncimmune (USA) LLC is committed to the pursuit of early cancer detection technologies. Now offering EarlyCDT-Lung in all 50 states, Oncimmune is helping to change the way physicians approach the diagnosis of lung cancer. EarlyCDT-Lung is a simple blood test that measures specific autoantibodies (immuno-biomarkers), which are elevated in patients with lung cancer. Because these autoantibodies are present at the earliest stages of the disease, EarlyCDT-Lung can aid physicians in the detection of lung cancer even before a patient exhibits specific symptoms of lung cancer.
The original corporate website, Oncimmune.com, first launched in 2009, and provided detailed information about EarlyCDT-Lung and the importance of early cancer detection. That site currently serves as a global page, directing physicians across the globe to the appropriate page suited for their geographic location. For physicians located in the United States, EarlyCDT-Lung.com was created, helping to educate the medical community about EarlyCDT-Lung and autoantibody assay technology.
The new and improved site launched March 22 and has already been met with great enthusiasm from the medical community. Site visitors now have access to a variety of materials including:
- A blog with contributions from Dr. Jewell and Dr. Pingleton, two authorities in the field of cancer detection and treatment.
- Lung Cancer Risk Assessment
- Cost of Smoking Calculator
- Video Gallery
- An interactive presentation, walking visitors through the stages of lung cancer
“We are very excited to launch EarlyCDT-Lung.com,” said Greg Stanley, Chief Commercial Officer, of Oncimmune. “It is our goal to reach an even larger audience of medical professionals and to help them understand how EarlyCDT-Lung can help in the diagnosis of lung cancer at its earliest stages in many cases before the onset of lung cancer symptoms.”
In addition, Oncimmune maintains HelloHaveYouHeard.com; a consumer-focused website designed. Equipped with a blog, a risk calculator and much more, HelloHaveYouHeard.com is a portal for people looking to learn about lung cancer risk, the value of early detection, and symptoms of lung cancer. Together both sites are helping Oncimmune promote the importance of early lung cancer detection, encouraging a dialog between at-risk patients and the physicians who treat them.
Oncimmune is committed to advancing early cancer detection technology. They are working to raise awareness about autoantibody assay technology and its potential impact on the future of cancer detection and treatment. The launch of the site is part of an overarching strategy which has recently included: an educational video series, the launch of a consumer-focused Lung Cancer Awareness Wall, a social media campaign, and more. Through these efforts, Oncimmune is successfully engaging a growing audience of consumers and physicians; igniting conversation about the importance of early cancer detection. Watch for more exciting announcements from the Oncimmune team in the coming months.
