NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the tremendous run in the biotech sector over the last 12 months many have overlooked this micro-cap gem that has terrific upside potential. Metastat, Inc. (OTCQB: MTST) is a life sciences company that provides proprietary platform technologies for the treatment of systemic metastasis. This micro-cap stock is topping the list for many analyst in the coming year.
Metastat has all characteristics that a smart investor would look for in a biotech company. It has short term revenue potential from its platform diagnostic product, which will primarily focus on determining the likelihood of metastasis in patients with breast cancer and should be in the market early 2015. Side-by-side, the company is working rapidly and inexpensively to explore possibility of using the technology for prostate, lung and colorectal cancers. In addition, it has access to a library of targets and drugs with the potential to inhibit metastasis based on the biology and technology the company's work centers around. The underlying technology has been licensed from several premier medical research institutes including MIT and Albert Einstein Medical School.
In October 2013, the company announced that a study of nearly 500 women with breast cancer showed the predictive ability of the company's MetaSite Breast test in detecting mestastic disease.
Metastasis is the spread of a cancer from the primary tumor to distant sites (e.g. liver, lung, bone, brain). Metastatic cancer is almost always fatal. However, not all solid tumors are biologically capable of metastasizing. Only 30-35% of breast cancer and 15-20% of prostate cancers actually spread to other organs, yet a vast majority of these are treated aggressively.
In December 2013, the company announced that it had entered into two separate exclusive worldwide patent and technology license agreements with The Massachusetts Institute of Technology ("MIT") and its David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT and its Department of Biology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, and Montefiore Medical Center. The Agreements cover the use of alternatively spliced mRNA and protein isoform markers for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of metastasis in epithelial solid tumor cancers.
With recently awarded patents, further allowances and numerous filings and an experienced management team running both the diagnostic and therapeutic programs, Metastat has advantages that are rarely seen in micro-cap stocks.
