The ECLIPSE (Evaluation of the ctDNA LUNAR test in an Average Patient Screening Episode) study is a prospective, observational multi-site study without randomization. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the performance characteristics of a blood-based ctDNA LUNAR-2 test to detect colorectal cancer in a screen-relevant, average risk population.
The LUNAR-2 test has been developed to detect malignant disease in screen-relevant patients who would otherwise undergo screening for malignant disease using invasive methodologies such as colonoscopy. The intended use of such a test would be to return a result of ctDNA detected/ ctDNA not detected in a patient eligible for average risk screening for colorectal cancer. Those patients who receive a ctDNA detected result should undergo further investigation with colonoscopy.
In order to define the performance characteristics of the test in a relevant population, this study will perform a blood draw prior to the patient undergoing the standard of care colonoscopy (and all associated preparatory medications) and retrospectively compare the performance characteristics of the LUNAR-2 test with the findings of the index colonoscopy.
Outcomes of patients at one and two-years post-procedure will be collected as secondary endpoints to investigate the possibility of incidental, non-colorectal cancer cases and interval cancers that had not reached the clinical threshold for detection at the time of the index colonoscopy.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) ranked the first in cancer incidence in Hong Kong and it is frequently lethal with heterogeneous drug responses and survival outcomes. Immune-based approaches targe...
The immune response in cancer is increasingly understood to be important in determining clinical outcomes, including responses to cancer therapies. New insights into the mechanisms underpinning the im...
Platelets have been shown to promote the growth of tumors, including colorectal cancer. The RNA profile of tumor-educated platelets has the possibility for cancer diagnosis. We used RNA sequencing to ...
Clinical and experimental evidence suggests that colorectal mucosal microbiota changes during colorectal carcinogenesis and may impair colorectal anastomotic wound healing. Thus, we hypothesized that ...
Colorectal cancer remains as a serious global cause of morbidity and mortality. The current therapies for colorectal cancer treatment are still unsatisfactory and thus, identification of novel targets...
Tumour budding is defined as the presence of a cluster of fewer than 5 cells along the invasive margin. It may confer a worse prognosis in colorectal cancer, but its importance in pT2N0 colorectal can...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
