Webinar: Blood-Based Proteomic Classifier for the Molecular Characterization of Pulmonary Nodules, a Case Study in the Discovery and Validation of a Molecular Diagnostic

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

The results of a major study were published recently in Science Translational Medicine (STM), which suggest that quantifying a combination of blood proteins can distinguish between benign lung nodules and early-stage lung cancer with high probability.

In this webinar, Daniel Chelsky, Chief Scientific Officer at Caprion Proteomics, will discuss candidate identification, assay development, testing and results, beginning with the derivation of the initial list of candidates, to the identification of the five blood-based proteins, which together constitute the biomarker panel used in the commercial protein expression test, developed in collaboration with Integrated Diagnostics (InDi).

Specific topics covered by the speaker will include the use of Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM or SRM) technology as a critical factor in the successful development of a multi-protein classifier panel, as well as the various strategies used to ensure disease specificity and relevance in the final panel.
