Ten biomarkers for lung cancer detection

Added: Monday 9 April 2012

Ten serum biomarkers could aid lung cancer detection, avoiding biopsies in some cases. The biomarkers come into play when computed tomography (CT) has identified nodules but these nodules have not been definitely diagnosed as cancer. The ten biomarkers distinguished the lung cancer samples from the control samples in the study with a sensitivity of 92.9% and specificity of 87.5%.
