Lung Cancer Screening Study With Low-dose CT Scan and Blood Biomarker

2015-03-13 02:53:24 | BioPortfolio


Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the USA. Early stage lung cancer is asymptomatic. Most patients with lung cancer are usually symptomatic at diagnosis and already have advanced stage disease. Low dose CT screening (LDCT) for high risk individuals has recently been shown to decrease lung cancer mortality by 20%. However, 4 out of 5 lung cancer deaths are not prevented with LDCT screening alone.


In this trial, the addition of a blood biomarker test is being combined with early LDCT to determine if screening with combination may result in detection of more lung cancer at an earlier stage of disease.The study will also assess if the blood test is able to detect lung cancers in high risk individuals when the LDCT is negative for cancer. There will be health-economic costs included in the final analysis of study data.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.

A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.

Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.

A test to determine the lowest sound intensity level at which fifty percent or more of the spondaic test words (words of two syllables having equal stress) are repeated correctly.
