BIAF:  A Potential Advance in the Early Detection of Cancer

  • In our view, bioAffinity is well positioned to establish its CyPath® Lung test as a cost-effective, non-invasive tool to aid in the early detection of lung cancer, which is among the most common and deadly forms of cancer. Early diagnosis, before the cancer has spread, is a significant contributor to survival. Research suggests that Stage 1 lung cancer that is detected and treated early can increase the ten-year survival rate to over 90% from a five-year survival rate of approximately 20% for Stages 2-4.
  • CyPath® Lung utilizes flow cytometry and proprietary machine learning algorithms to profile the approximately 20 million cells in an average sputum sample in less than 20 minutes. This approach has helped overcome the limitations of traditional analytical throughput, and test validation trial results achieved superior results of 92% sensitivity and 87% specificity in high-risk patients who had lung nodules 20 mm or smaller. 
  • bioAffinity, in partnership with Precision Pathology Services under the latter's CLIA-certified laboratory, is in the nascent stages of a regional launch plan and is expected to roll out more broadly through 2023. bioAffinity plans to conduct a pivotal trial on CyPath® Lung in order to gain FDA approval, which would enable direct marketing to a larger addressable market, which we believe could occur by early 2027.
  • Over the longer term, we see potential for bioAffinity to develop and market non-invasive tests for additional lung diseases as well as other cancers, and to develop therapeutics for cancer, which would represent additional potential value drivers.
  • bioAffinity raised gross proceeds of $15.6 million from a September 2022 initial public offering (IPO) that included the issuance of share/warrant units, as well as from the exercise of some legacy warrants. As such, we view the company as sufficiently capitalized into 2024, which we view favorably amid the currently challenging and volatile financing conditions for small-cap companies.  
  • Based on our E/V-to-revenue valuation analysis, we arrive at a fair value estimate for BIAF of $9.00 per share, well above its current level.
