BioMark Recognizes and Supports the Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Vancouver, British Columbia – (Nov 10, 2021) – BioMark Diagnostics Inc. (“BioMark”) (CSE: BUX) (FSE: 20B) (OTCMKTS: BMKDF) an advanced stage liquid biopsy company with a focus on hard to detect and treat cancers is pleased to announce today that it recognizes and wanted to raise awareness of the challenges that come from a diagnosis of lung cancer. There are fundamental strides being made in both the early diagnosis and more effective therapeutic intervention that will better smooth the treatment journey for patients.

Throughout November and beyond, BioMark will be posting relevant short articles related to this fatal disease in different social media. The campaign aims to encourages both men and women to know their risks for lung cancer and to consider annual screenings to gain an advantage on the disease through earlier diagnosis.

“Since 2007, our mission and team commitment remain the same. Develop and commercialize innovative technologies that increase the accuracy of early-stage diagnosis of cancers. BioMark continues to be deeply involved in the development of a simple blood test that can help detect lung cancer at an early stage (Stage I and II) where the chance of being cured increases1. Working with dedicated researchers, leading clinicians, and more importantly patients, we are determined and motivated to positively impact lung cancer through early detection where survival is greatly improved. Our goal this month is not only to share information but to recognize and support individuals and groups who have helped to make a difference for lung cancer patients, caregivers, family and friends” says Rashid Bux, President and CEO.

Last year, lung cancer remained the leading cause of cancer death, with an estimated 1.8 million deaths accounting for 18% of all cancer deaths2. There is also an imperative need to better understand and address disparities in ethnic and socioeconomic inequities in lung cancer that contribute to cancer incidence and mortality3. Low socioeconomic populations experience greater environmental exposures and subsequent increased lung cancer incidence and mortality4,5. Similarly, rurality leads to further disparities, as black individuals in rural areas have greater lung cancer incidence than those in urban areas6.

Make sure to follow and share our social media posts. By sharing information about lung cancer, you’ll help us inspire new hope and change the face of the disease.
