First Reportable Data of EarlyCDT™-Lung Use in Clinical Practice Presented at IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer
Date:7/5/2011

s reproducible performance.  Early lung cancer detection can save lives, as highlighted in last week's New England Journal of Medicine publication of the NLST trial, which compared spiral-CT to X-ray in high risk patients. It is our hope that this body of work will lead to the early adoption of EarlyCDT-Lung, which can help physicians diagnose lung cancer at an earlier stage more cost-effectively, and also reduce the number of false positives associated with CT."

The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) compared two ways of detecting lung cancer: low-dose helical computed tomography (CT) and standard chest X-ray.  NLST enrolled 53,454 current or former heavy smokers from 33 sites and coordinating centers across the United States.  The findings reveal that participants who received low-dose helical CT scans had a 20 percent lower risk of dying from lung cancer than participants who received standard chest X-rays.

About Early Immuno-Biomarkers

Early immuno-biomarkers, in the form of autoantibodies, are produced in response to the presence of certain by-products from cancer cells (i.e., proteins called antigens). When the body recognizes something as "non-self" one of the ways it responds is for the immune system to produce large amounts of antibodies. The immune system does not normally produce antibodies against normal tissue proteins and therefore these immuno-biomarkers to cancer antigens provide high specificity for cancer. Tests that detect autoantibodies to a single tumor protein have been available for a number of years but have had low pickup rates (sensitivity). Previously, multiple antigen tests had low specificity, especially for early detection. Oncimmune's EarlyCDT-Lu
