Caprion Proteomics Announces Study Results on Development of Blood-Based Diagnostic for Lung Cancer Yields Publication in Science Translational Medicine
Oct 16 13
Caprion Proteomics announced the results of a major study conducted by Indi (Integrated Diagnostics) which suggests that quantification of a combination of blood proteins can accurately distinguish between benign lung nodules and early-stage lung cancer. The study, which was published in Science Translational Medicine (STM) and includes several Caprion scientists as co-authors, indicates that when the relative concentrations of this group of proteins (or 'classifier') is combined, the classifier result is correct more than 90% of the time in diagnosing benign lung nodules. This multiple protein classifier uses a highly sensitive analytic technique called multiple reaction monitoring mass spectroscopy (MRM-mass spec). The laboratory-based analytical method, combined with sophisticated bioinformatics and systems-biology approaches allowed the researchers to assess the diagnostic power of 371 potential lung cancer biomarkers in millions of different combinations before settling on the diagnostic classifier (set of biomarkers) that these data indicate is most effective.
