ARUP Laboratories Introduces Blood Test to Aid in the Early Detection of Lung Cancer
Date:1/9/2013

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

ARUP Laboratories announced today that it is entering into an agreement with Kansas-based Oncimmune® USA LLC to offer EarlyCDT®-Lung, the blood test that aids in the risk assessment and the early detection of lung cancer, to its clients.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the United States. Each year more people die of lung cancer than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. Approximately 226,160 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in 2012, and 160,340 deaths occurred.

“Oncimmune is pleased to partner with ARUP in offering our EarlyCDT-Lung test,” said Greg Stanley, chief commercial officer at Oncimmune USA. “We believe that our partnership with ARUP can improve the well-being of many individuals who are at risk for developing lung cancer.”

Seventeen peer-reviewed publications support the performance and clinical utility of the EarlyCDT-Lung test. The test has a high specificity (93%), seven times fewer false positives and seven times better positive predictive value (PPV) than CT, and >91% accuracy, when considering a population with 2% prevalence of lung cancer (20 lung cancers per thousand).

Numerous leading academic institutions and more than 2,000 physicians are running the test. An audit of clinical data from the first 1,600 patients tested by EarlyCDT-Lung validates
