Sienna Cancer Diagnostics Limited (ASX: SDX) is an Australian company that has developed, and commercialised, a new technology with application in the early detection of cancer.

Sienna has launched an in vitro diagnostic (“IVD”) test to detect human TElomerase Reverse Transcriptase (“hTERT”), recognized as an important cancer-related biomarker. The first application of the test is as an adjunct to urine cytology to assist in the diagnosis of bladder cancer. 

Regulatory approvals

Sienna has registered its IVD test for human clinical use with the relevant authorities in the USA, Europe  and Australia. The technology is currently in routine use in commercial laboratories in the USA, generating revenues of $292k for the six months to December 2017.

Distribution channels

Supply and distribution agreements have been executed with partners in the USA, the UK and Switzerland, with additional partnerships being developed in a number of other countries. StatLab, a pathology supply company that has significant presence in the US market, has been appointed as the distribution partner for the USA.

Market opportunity

Sienna will be targeting a market segment of urine cytology, including bladder cancer detection. In the USA alone this market opportunity is estimated to be between 1.3 and 1.6 million tests per annum.  Sienna’s test is eligible for an average reimbursement of US$108.38 per test in the USA creating a total market value for laboratories in the USA of over US$140 million per year.  The rest of world outside the USA represents a significant additional market opportunity.

Future growth

The company believes future revenue growth may be achieved through:

  • increased market penetration in the USA.
  • geographical expansion into additional countries across Europe, Asia and the rest of the world.
  • expanding the clinical applications of the product into additional cancer types.
  • adding new biomarker products to the pipeline through in-license or acquisition.
