EDRN investigators protocols. The following is a list of the EDRN protocols that have been captured and curated. Additional information will be added as it is available. Contact information is provided as part of the detail for each protocol.


Title Abstract Investigator
Clinical Proteomic Technologies for Cancer Initiative (CPTAC) Phase I CPTAC Phase I 2006 - 2011, was developed to address the pre-analytical and analytical variability issues that are major barriers to the field of proteomics. ... Kinsinger, Chris
Clinical Proteomic Technologies for Cancer Initiative (CPTAC) Phase II The objective of the "System Suitability (CompRef) Study" was to validate mass spectrometry protocols used at each Proteome Characterization Center (PCC). Kinsinger, Chris
Clinical Utility of Urinary CD90 as a Biomarker for Prostate Cancer Detection Tumor-associated stromal cells differ from normal gland-associated stromal cells in gene expression. Genes up-regulated in these stromal cells are potential ... Liu, Alvin Y.

Clinical validation of an autoantibody test for lung cancer BACKGROUND: Autoantibodies may be present in a variety of underlying cancers several years before tumours can be detected and testing for their presence may ... Boyle, Peter
Clinical validity of the lung cancer biomarkers identified by bioinformatics analysis of public expression data. Identification of molecular markers often leads to important clinical applications such as early diagnosis, prognosis, and drug targeting. Lung cancer, the ... Kim, Bumjin
Collaborative study on SELDI biomarker discovery and serum protein profiling of lung cancers Semmes, John
Colon Cancer Specimen Reference Set Application: Disis - University of Washington (2008) The proposed study aims to validate the diagnostic value of a panel of serum antibodies for the early detection of colorectal cancer (CRC). We have developed a ... Disis, Mary L
Colon Cancer Specimen Reference Set Application: Getzenberg - Johns Hopkins (2008) The goal of this project is to confirm the early validation of CCSA-3 and CCSA-4 as biomarkers for the early detection of adenocarcinoma of the colon and ... Getzenberg, Robert H.
Colon Cancer Specimen Reference Set Application: Jendoubi - Milagen (2006) No Data Received at DMCC Jendoubi, Moncef
Colon Cancer Specimen Reference Set Application: Kim - DiaDexus (2008) Kim, Nam
DCIS Team Project This procedure applies to identification of the cohort and of cases and controls from the cohort of women with the diagnosis of DCIS at the Seattle CVC (PI= ... Li, Christopher
DNA methylation in tumor and matched normal tissues from non-small cell lung cancer patients. We used MethyLight assays to analyze DNA methylation status of 27 genes on 49 paired cancerous and noncancerous tissue samples from non-small cell lung cancer ... Feng, Qinghua
Depo-Provera and Breast Cancer: Epidemiology/Pathology The injectable contraceptive depot medroxy-progesterone acetate (DMPA) (Depo-Provera) is commonly used by women worldwide, and it contains the same progestin ... Li, Christopher

Detection of cancer DNA markers in urine Block, Timothy
Development and Clinical Validation of Biomarkers for Prostate Cancer Partin, Alan W
Development and Evaluation of a Tumor Marker for Prostate Cancer Major strides in the early detection, staging, monitoring, and risk stratification of men with prostate cancer have been realized over the last few decades. ... Partin, Alan W
Development of FISH-based assay for early detection of high grade cervical dysplasia Unger, Elizabeth R.
Development of a magneto-nanosensor (MNS) array for prostate cancer biomarkers Our goal is to develop a blood-based biomarker magneto-nanosensor array for the accurate early detection and prognostication of prostate cancer Gambhir, Sanjiv
Development of a multiplexed tumor-associated autoantibody-based blood test for the detection of non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has an overall 5-year survival of <15%; however, the 5-year survival for stage I disease is over 50%. ... Farlow, Erin C.
Development of autoantibody signatures as novel diagnostic biomarkers of non-small cell lung cancer PURPOSE: To select autoantibody signatures as noninvasive biomarkers of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: A phage cDNA expression ... Wu, Lingling
