National Jewish Health, the Nation's Premier Respiratory Hospital, Announces Lung Cancer Screening Trial Using Blood Test and CT
Date:5/1/2012

DENVER and DESOTO, Kan., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- National Jewish Health (NJH), the # 1 respiratory hospital in the United States, today announces the initiation of a lung cancer screening trial that evaluates the use of a blood test, known as EarlyCDT-Lung, in conjunction with low dose CT to determine the clinical value added by the blood test when compared to CT screening alone, which was shown recently by the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) (1) in the U.S. to reduce mortality by 20%.  James Jett, M.D., a National Jewish Health lung cancer expert, will serve as the Principal Investigator for the study.  Patient recruitment for the trial begins immediately.  Those interested in participating can call 303.398.1911. (See eligibility requirements below – How to take part in the trial.)

The National Jewish Health trial will be a prospective trial combining low dose (radiation) CT screening and the EarlyCDT-Lung blood test to determine if the two together are better than either test alone when used in screening high risk individuals for lung cancer.  Previous studies that led to the development and launch of the EarlyCDT-Lung blood test as a risk assessment tool for lung cancer were case control trials.

"Having watched the progress of the EarlyCDT-Lung test with interest over the past few years I am excited to be the Principal Investigator for the new study between CEAC (The Centre of Excellence for Autoimmunity in Cancer – Nottingham University, UK) and National Jewish Health being announced today. I reviewed the EarlyCDT-Lung validation data before launch and I also reviewed the performance of the first 1,000 commercial tests in the USA. These showed that the test performed as expected in the clinical setting and I presented this analysis at the World Lung Cancer Conference in Amsterdam last year. I believe
