Autoantibodies identified that may help predict lung cancer

October 2008
Hem/Onc Today;10/25/2008, Vol. 9 Issue 19, p35
The article discusses a blinded validation study on a novel screening approach for the detection of lung cancer. According to the study conducted by several researchers, including those from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, published in a 2008 issue of the "Journal of Clinical Oncology," the screening of autoantibodies can help predict the development of lung cancer even before symptoms show.

    Background: The polymorphism of TP53 codon 72, a transversion of G to C (Arg to Pro), has been demonstrated to be associated with the risk for lung cancer. However, individual studies conducted in Chinese have provided conflicting and inconclusive findings. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis by...
