New research demonstrates potential diagnosis, treatment benefits
Date:1/10/2008

lex (TSC) may also be tested, as 40-50 percent of women with LAM develop TSC kidney tumors.

Beyond its use as a potential clinical diagnostic for LAM, VEGF-D may prove useful as a potential biomarker for the development of LAM treatments, said Lisa Young, M.D., Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine at the UC College of Medicine, and study co-author. It may prove useful in testing outcome measures similar to the way we used kidney tumor volume as a measurement in the sirolimus study.

Researchers say that if validated as a biomarker, the serum test may improve the ability to conduct trials more quickly. Furthermore, identification of a biomarker for LAM may have treatment implications for other diseases with similar pathways that affect millions of Americans, including breast cancer, diabetes, obesity and even autism.
