Standard Specimen Reference Set: Lung

The NCI/EDRN/SPORE Lung Cancer Biomarkers Group (LCBG) began its activities back in November 2004 and developed clear objectives and strategies on how to begin validating a series of candidate biomarkers for the early detection of lung cancer. The initial goal of the LCBG is to develop the requisite sample resources to validate serum/plasma biomarkers for the early diagnosis of lung cancer. Researchers may use these resources and process for continued biomarker refinement but this is not the primary activity of the LCBG.

Our specific goals include: 1.   Develop reference case/control serum/plasma sets held in a NCI repository and make these samples available to the research community. 2.   Define, refine and validate blood-based biomarkers for lung cancer. 3.   Test reproducibility of biomarkers within and across institutions. 4.   Test reproducibility of biomarkers within and across analytical platforms.
