Breaking EarlyCDT-Lung News


If you have one or more of these risk factors:

• It is appropriate to test current smokers & ex-smokers
   • ≥ 50 years of age with at least a 20 pack year smoking history
   (equivalent to smoking one pack of cigarettes per day for 20 years)
   • 40-49 years of age with a >20 pack year history, plus at least 1 additional risk factor
Additional Risk Factors:
   • Family history of lung cancer in a first degree relative
   • Emphysema/COPD
   • Environment exposures including asbestos, radon, radioactive substances, dust
• Patients with indeterminate pulmonary nodule(s)
• Not recommended for patients with a personal history of cancer



Remember Cancer Is Progressive

Lung cancer claims more lives each year than breast, colon, liver, kidney and melanoma cancers combined, due in part to inadequate early detection.(1) Generally speaking, lung cancer symptoms do not appear until later stages of the disease when 5-year survival can be as low as 4%.(2)

What if a test is Low Level, Moderate Level or High Level?

There are three possible test results: Low Level, Moderate Level, and High Level, depending upon the amount of autoantibodies in the blood compared to low and high cutoff levels for each autoantibody. Occasionally the result is Invalid, which suggests something in the blood interfered with the test and a result was not possible.

A Low Level test is defined as all autoantibodies in the EarlyCDT-Lung panel being below the low cutoff value. This result indicates a lower likelihood of lung cancer than a Moderate Level or High Level result. However it does not mean that you do not have, or will not develop, lung cancer.

A Moderate Level test is defined as one or more autoantibodies in the EarlyCDT-Lung panel being above the low cutoff value but all are below the high cutoff value.

A High Level test is defined as any one or more autoantibodies in the EarlyCDT-Lung panel being above the high cutoff value.

For both a Moderate Level and High Level test result, additional monitoring for lung cancer is recommended, including imaging with low dose CT (LDCT).
