PCA3 Reference Set Application: T2-Erg-Martin Sanda-Emory (2014) We hypothesize that combining T2:erg (T2:erg) fusion and PCA3 detection in urine collected after digital rectal exam can improve the specificity of identifying ... Sanda, Martin
PCA3 Validation Study and Urinary Reference Set see Publication Wei, John
PLCO Ovarian Phase III Validation Study The obvious appeal of a strategy for the early detection of ovarian cancer is based upon the tendency for the disease to present at advanced stages associated ... Cramer, Daniel
PTM Microarray: Request for Year 3 Set-Aside Funds We hypothesize that PTMs on proteins that are secreted by the breast will provide a more sensitive method for detecting breast cancer than analysis of the ... Zangar, Richard (Rick) C.
