Standard Specimen Reference Set: Breast

121

The primary objective of this study is to assemble a well-characterized set of blood specimens to test biomarkers that, in conjunction with mammography, can detect and discriminate breast cancer. These samples will be divided to provide “sets” of specimens that can be tested in a number of different laboratories. Since tests will be performed on the same sets of samples, the data will be directly comparable and decisions regarding which biomarker or set of biomarkers have value in breast cancer detection can be made. These sets will reside at a National Cancer Institute facility at Frederick, MD.

There are currently no biomarkers annotated for this protocol.

No datasets are currently associated with this protocol.
