JAMA Study Demonstrates Efficacy of Life Technologies' Lung Cancer Test in Detecting Early Metastases, Supports Screening for Lung Cancer
Date:11/8/2012

allenge of screening is how to maximize the chances of survival for a dramatically increased number of patients who would be diagnosed at the very earliest stages. Right now, a quarter or more of those patients would still die, despite early detection. The Pervenio™ test could add a layer of sophistication and personalization to the care of that growing population that could improve survival rates even further."

"There is also a movement toward limiting the loss of healthy lung tissue to lung cancer operations," Dr. Jablons added, "but there is concern that important prognostic information currently used in conventional staging might be lost with less radical surgery. Pervenio™ has been shown to provide even more accurate information about prognosis and would therefore enable equal or even better clinical management decisions with lung-sparing operations."

Pervenio™ Lung RS is available through the Life Technologies' Clinical Services Lab, which is licensed in all 50 U.S. states. Life Technologies also plans to make Pervenio™ Lung RS available outside of the United States, so the test can be broadly deployed on Life Technologies' regulated platforms, including the 7500 Fast Dx for qPCR.

The study, titled "Ability of a Prognostic Assay to Identify Patients at High Risk of Mortality Despite Small, Node-Negative Lung Tumors," was supported by private endowments to the UCSF Thoracic Oncology Laboratory and by Pinpoint Genomics, which Life Technologies acquired in July 2012.
