New Study Demonstrates Clinical Validity of EarlyCDT-Lung™
Date:8/5/2010

tumor antigens to detect the presence of immuno-biomarkers produced in the form of autoantibodies by the patient's immune system. Elevation of any one of six immuno-biomarkers (autoantibodies) above a predetermined cutoff value suggests that a tumor might be present. This simple blood test aids in risk assessment and the early detection of lung cancer in high-risk patient populations. The key advantage of the test is its ability to detect cancer earlier, and with higher specificity, than spiral-CT which is the standard diagnostic imaging test used for these patients today. EarlyCDT-Lung is priced below a CT scan and as a simple blood test, eliminates radiation exposure from imaging screening techniques. High-risk individuals such as long-term smokers and ex-smokers between the ages of 40 and 75 and individuals with other risk factors such as environmental exposures and extensive exposure to secondary smoke are candidates for the test. Further research to investigate the most beneficial clinical use of the test (i.e., as a first test leading to further testing for those positive, or as a test providing further information to those who already have a CT identified nodule) is currently being finalized. EarlyCDT-Lung is CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act) regulated. Other tests for breast, ovarian, esophagogastric, colon and liver cancers are planned.
