DermTech Helps Detect Skin Cancer Through a Smart Sticker Instead of a Scalpel

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/QVe6yyOnK_4 Would it surprise you to know that one in five Americans develops skin cancer during her or his lifetime? In fact, every hour of every day one American dies from melanoma. It is the deadliest of skin cancers, and one of the most common cancers diagnosed in the U.S. Because of the nation-wide closures of dermatology offices during the pandemic, the number of skin cancers diagnosed during March-May 2020 decreased by 43% compared to the same timeframe in 2019. This means there is a potential backlog of undiagnosed skin cancers. Even prior to the pandemic, only 16 percent of Americans ages 18-29 surveyed in a 2018 study stated that they visited a dermatologist’s office in the past 12 months. What if there were innovative and painless ways to get your moles checked at home via a telehealth appointment and under clinician supervision? DermTech has a proprietary innovative technology platform that identifies signs of melanoma at the genomic level and allows dermatologists to detect melanoma earlier and more accurately. The DermTech Melanoma Test analyzes’s genes in your skin sample that is collected using Smart Stickers TM, and with a 99% negative predictive value meaning there is a less than 1% probability of the test missing a melanoma when administered properly. Simply press the Smart Sticker TM on the suspicious spot or mole; the adhesive sticker safely collects your cellular material so it can be transported to DermTech’s onsite Gene Lab where laboratory scientists look at the molecular level for RNA and DNA that are linked to melanoma. Results are shared with your dermatology provider within 3-5 days. DermTech’s test can also be performed with a doctor’s order and remote sample collection (at your home) under clinician supervision. In honor of Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month taking place this month, DermTech also launched its #Stickit2Melanoma campaign to urge people to get proactive about their skin exams. DermTech is pledging up to $1 million over the next four years to raise awareness about the importance of skin exams and making them accessible. For every #Stickit2Melanoma pledge to have a skin exam with a clinician, DermTech will make a $5 donation to its nonprofit partner organizations focused on skin health. To join #Stickit2Melanoma, schedule a skin exam with your doctor, take the pledge at www.DermTech.com/Pledge and encourage your community to do the same.

The Future of Indoor Air Quality

YourUpdateTV

While concerns over indoor air quality are nothing new, the COVID-19 pandemic has made people realize just how important clean, indoor air is to our health. As states continue to fully reopen, facilities around the country are turning to new technologies to help keep indoor spaces safe. Recently, Dr. Ken Thorpe, a scientific advisor to Integrated Viral Protection, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the impact of these new technologies and what the future holds for indoor air quality. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/wrtkcmLQ5pY As more states begin to fully reopen, Houston-based Integrated Viral Protection (IVP) is helping businesses do so safely with their IVP Biodefense Indoor Air System.

IVP is playing an integral role in reopening businesses such as hotels and restaurants and keeping children in schools around the country safe and is positioned to be the standard going forward, promoting clean and healthy air in all spaces. IVP is installed in health care settings across the U.S. to include over 100 healthcare facilities, including COVID-19 specialty hospitals, neuro-psych facilities, rehabilitation hospitals and tertiary centers. The game changing technology works by forcing air through a heated filter that captures and kills contaminants, including airborne pathogens, instantaneously, without changing the ambient air temperature significantly. IVP has been endorsed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as one of five top technologies in the world to combat COVID-19, and was recently named a top 25 Newsmaker of the Year by the Engineering News Record. Integrated Viral Protection (IVP) has also launched a new portable air purifying unit that instantaneously kills COVID-19 and other airborne pathogens. The compact travel unit, ideal for spaces up to 250 square feet, quietly cleans the air anywhere, including in hotel rooms, meeting rooms, residential spaces and more. The unit is also perfect for hotel and dorm rooms or common areas of a home.
