We have developed a new and novel assay for the detection of Golgi protein 73 (GP73), also known as Golgi membrane protein 1 (Golm1) or Golgi phosphoprotein 2 (Golph2), in serum/plasma. The clinical question is to determine the clinical utility of gp73 antigen detection by the new assay for early hepatocullular carcinoma (HCC) diagnosis, for risk-assessment of patients at high risk for progression of their liver disease, and for prognosis.

The EDRN reference set will provide us with an opportunity to test the present version of the assay on a new, well-characterized cohort that has not been subjected to multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Since this assay will be submitted to the FDA for 510(k) clearance, we will want to test a training set prior to the blinded test set. Statistical analysis will be conducted at the DMCC.
