PRESEPT Study: Evaluation of SEPT9 Biomarker Performance for Colorectal Cancer Screening
The purpose of this study is to collect blood specimens and clinical data from screening guideline eligible individuals designated by their physician to receive a screening colonoscopy, and to evaluate the performance of a colorectal cancer-specific DNA methylation biomarker for detection of colorectal cancer in this cohort. Based on the outcome of the colonoscopy, polypectomy, biopsy and surgical tissue histopathology, the clinical utility of Septin 9 as colorectal cancer screening test will be evaluated.
The study is designed as a prospective, open enrollment clinical investigation involving multiple clinical study sites in the United States and Germany. Subjects will be competitively enrolled at multiple sites until at least 50 invasive colorectal adenocarcinoma cases identified by screening colonoscopy and verified by clinical and histopathological examination have been enrolled. The primary objective of the investigation is to evaluate and describe the clinical performance of the Septin 9 Biomarker for detecting the 50 individuals with invasive colorectal adenocarcinoma identified in this population representative of the US screening guideline eligible population. Secondary objectives will be to evaluate and describe performance characteristics of the biomarker in individuals with adenomatous polyps 10 mm or larger, flat lesion (s) or non-invasive adenocarcinoma.
Collaborating sites will identify and contact patients scheduled for screening colonoscopy. These patients may be screened by the PI or designee to determine the patients' appropriateness for, and interest in, study participation. Study site personnel will meet with patients meeting eligibility guidelines and offer them participation. Patients interested in participation and who provide written informed consent will be enrolled as Subjects in the study.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
All eligible subjects will provide blood for SEPT9 biomarker testing

Blood Grouping And Crossmatching
Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.

Testing in which the source of the specimen or the person being tested is not individually identified.
A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).
