About MetaStat, Inc.
We are a pre-commercial biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of diagnostic tests that are prognostic for risk of cancer metastasis, companion diagnostics to predict drug response, and anti-metastatic drugs. Our driver-based platform technology is based on the pivotal role of the Mena protein and its isoforms, a common pathway for the development of metastatic disease in epithelial-based solid tumors.
Our product development strategy is based on identifying patients most at risk for cancer metastasis and targeting the underlying mechanisms that drive the metastatic cascade. Unlike most oncology therapeutics that kill cancer cells directly or inhibit cancer cell proliferation, we focus on preventing aggressive tumors from spreading. This is particularly relevant as most cancer deaths are caused by aggressive tumors that spread throughout the body and not due to growth of the primary tumor.
