The company’s mission is to establish its blood-based test for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer as a standard amongst pancreatologists and diabetes physicians worldwide for detecting pancreatic cancer in high-risk groups much earlier than is possible today.

Immunovia AB was founded in 2007 by investigators from the Department of Immunotechnology at Lund University and CREATE Health, the Center for Translational Cancer Research in Lund, Sweden.

Immunovia’s strategy is to decipher the wealth of information in blood and translate it into clinically useful tools to diagnose complex diseases such as cancer, earlier and more accurately than previously possible. Immunovia´s core technology platform, IMMray®, is based on antibody biomarker microarray analysis. The company is now performing clinical validation studies for the commercialization of IMMray® PanCan-d that could be the first blood based test for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. In the beginning of 2016, the company started a program focused on autoimmune diseases diagnosis, prognosis and therapy monitoring. The first test from this program, IMMray® SLE-d, is a biomarker signature derived for differential diagnosis of lupus, now undergoing evaluation and validation.

The headquarter is based at Medicon Village in Lund, Sweden. Today, there are 37 employees in total, of which 7 in Boston, USA. Immunovia’s shares (IMMNOV) are listed on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm and Wildeco is the company’s Certified Adviser.
