WHAT THE RESULTS MEAN
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).
