What is the LungPRO™ cancer test?
LungPRO™ is a prognostic test service for the Prediction of recurrence in early stage Lung cancer.
LungPRO™ test service utilizes gene expression technology to identify biomarkers to distinguish the negative responder (patients who will have recurrence within five years after complete resection) from the positive responder following surgical treatment in early stage (Stages Ia and Ib) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) patients. The results obtained from comparing patient samples to the biomarker profile will empower oncologists to:
Predict the likely recurrence of cancer, thereby determining whether additional treatment is needed after complete resection.
