Oncimmune Holdings PLC (LON:ONC), a leading global immunodiagnostics group, has been awarded the 'Winning in Business in Spain' award at the Department for International Trade's (DIT) UK-Spain Business Awards held on 20 February 2020 at the Madrid Stock Exchange.
The awards celebrate the extensive commercial relationships between the United Kingdom and Spain.
The DIT's introduction of Sabartech has enabled Oncimmune to build its successful distribution partnership with Sabartech, which has led to making EarlyCDT Lung available in Spain and Portugal.
Dr Adam M Hill, CEO of Oncimmune commented: “This award is testament to the strong relationship we have fostered with Sabartech. Every year there are 23,000 lung cancer deaths in Spain1.
“The key to improving lung cancer survival is early detection and we are delighted that our EarlyCDT Lung test is continuing to gain momentum in screening in Spain and beating cancer, one test at a time."
Javier Sarasqueta, co-founder and CEO of Sabartech said "Sabartech and Oncimmune have developed a great partnership that has helped launch EarlyCDT Lung in the Spanish market. We are looking forward to building on this to improve the early detection of lung cancer in both the private and public healthcare systems. This award is a fantastic recognition of all we have achieved so far."
