The company’s missions are:

1. To discover, develop and establish more accurate and reliable tools for the early diagnosis of cancers and autoimmune disorders based on the IMMray™ platform to enable more effective treatment and better patient outcomes.

2. To establish our blood-based test for the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer – IMMray™ PanCan-d – as a global standard 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 headquarter is based at Medicon Village in Lund, Sweden. Today, there are 45 employees in total, of which 8 in Boston, USA. Immunovia’s shares (IMMNOV) are listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
