Biomarker Identification May Lead to New Noninvasive Test for Colorectal Cancer Detection
Serum DNA Analysis Allows Detection of Early Disease, Say Researchers in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics
Philadelphia, PA, June 7, 2013 - The average 5-year survival for colorectal cancer (CRC) is less than 10% if metastasis occurs, but can reach 90% if detected early. A new non-invasive test has been developed that measures methylation of the SDC2 gene in tissues and blood sera. This test detected 87% of all stages of colorectal cancer cases (sensitivity) without significant difference between early and advanced stages, while correctly identifying 95% of disease-free patients (specificity). The results are published in the July issue of The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics.
ASIP Members Vishva M. Dixit, MD and Robert D. Schreiber, PhD are Elected as Members of the National Academy of Sciences
