SciBase has participated in, exhibited and demonstrated their product Nevisense, for early detection of malignant melanoma at the Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference in Las Vegas. The congress was held between 12th and 15 of October and is one of the largest and important national congresses within dermatology. At the congress Darrel S. Rigel, MD and Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the New York University Medical Center presented Nevisense as one of the top ten most important news stories within skin cancer. Nevisense was also presented in a scientific poster by Dr Ryan Svoboda. The poster illustrated the clinical performance of Nevisense and the EIS-method. The first installation and clinical use of Nevisense with patients in the US will be at Dr Rigel’s clinic in New York.
- This is the first time we participate in a congress in the US after our FDA approval and our aim has been to introduce Nevisense and build relationships with US dermatologists. We were pleased to establish many contacts during the congress and these will be valuable as we launch our product and method in the US market. It is also pleasing to be able to announce that we now have the first US clinic ready to soon start using Nevisense, says Simon Grant, CEO SciBase.
Professor Rigel is a well-known Key Opinion Leader within dermatology and especially within skin cancer. During one of his congress presentations he listed Nevisense as one of the top ten most important happenings within skin cancer that dermatologists need to know about.
Dr Rigel has presented over 600 times at different congresses, both medical and political, around the world. He is the architect of the so-called ABCDE criteria for melanoma, which are used to help determine if a lesion is benign or malignant. He is also frequently interviewed as an expert on nationwide television channels such as CNN, ABC, FOX, NBC and CBS and his research and opinions are regularly mentioned in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and many other nationwide newspapers and magazines. Dr Rigel’s clinic in New York will be the first clinical installation of Nevisense and will help SciBase understand how to best incorporate Nevisense into the US clinical environment.
