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

said Jett.

According to Professor John Robertson, M.D., Director of CEAC, and Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Oncimmune Ltd, the makers of EarlyCDT-Lung, "A randomised screening trial of this nature with a leading Lung Cancer Centre such as NJH will help validate EarlyCDT-Lung use as a screening tool. This combined with the large Scottish screening trial on 10,000 high risk smokers should provide sufficient data for accurate assessment of EarlyCDT-Lung both clinically and economically.

After many years of developing and refining this autoantibody test I am very proud of what we have achieved. The test is highly reproducible and will I believe lead to significant improvement in prognosis for a substantial number of lung cancer sufferers. We are working hard on bringing the next test for the early detection of breast cancer to the market within a year. We are also working on a number of similar tests for prostate, colon and ovarian cancer – a blood test to aid detection of all tumour cancers (70% of all cancer) is still the overriding objective of our work."

How to take part in the trial

Participants need to be 50-75 years of age, have a smoking history of at least 20 pack-years (equivalent to a pack a day for 20 years), and be a current or former smoker who quit fewer than 10 years ago. Those who have a history of cancer other than skin cancer, serious illness that limits their life expectancy to less than 5 years, or currently use oxygen to breathe are not eligible for the study.

Participants will receive both the EarlyCDT-Lung blood test and a low-dose CT scan at no charge. Those interested in participating can call 303.398.1911.

About Lung Cancer
