General tumor marker test now offered by GenWay clinical laboratory
Date:8/21/2009

(San Diego, CA) August 21, 2009 GenWay Clinical Laboratory, a US-based diagnostic company with CLIA certification, has validated a general tumor marker test in their laboratory and now offers this testing service. This is an ELISA-based assay which simply requires a small blood sample from the patient in order to quantify the amount of the tumor marker in their serum. This unique and proprietary test formula detects and quantifies specific biomarkers, tumor fibrin and fibrinogen degradation products (tFFDP), which are by-products of cancer cells. Elevated tFFDP levels have been associated with at least 14 different cancer types including lung, breast, stomach, liver, colon, rectal, ovarian, esophageal, cervical, trophoblastic, thyroid, malignant lymphoma, brain and pancreatic cancer making it one of the most versatile cancer biomarkers available. GenWay is continuing to evaluate the use of this test in other applications. This general tumor marker test can identify elevated levels of tFFDP in a patient which could potentially correspond to the presence of a malignant tumor.
