Proteomic Blood Test...any News Yet?

Good Morning Ladies,

A couple of months ago, Karenann wrote to me advising me of the PROTEOMIC BLOOD TEST for early ovarian cancer screening that she learned at a conference should be available before the year's end.

Does Karenann or anyone else know the status of this early screening test and it's potential availability date?

My best wishes and prayers to all of you!

Proteomic Blood Test...any News Yet?

An update:

At the Ovarian Cancer Natl Alliance Conf. in Sept, we learned it would be available by the end of 2003. However, it would not yet be widely used and one would need to request it.
I just returned from the Natl Ovarian Cancer Coalition conference where it was stated it would be available in the fall of 2004.
So like all things related to ovarian cancer, there is confusion.
And an east coast vs. west coast difference of when?
I know that it is in the haggling with insurance coverage stage.
The proteomics test will be a diagnostic tool with great accuracy.
If a woman has a positive proteomic blood test, she will then proceed to ultrasound etc.
It will also be an excellent tumor marker for those of us that rely on the ca 125 as a tumor marker.
I'll keep you posted as I learn more.

Proteomic Blood Test...any News Yet?

The proteomic test was fast tracked by the FDA and NCI back in April of 2002. Trials began at that time. Since the news I heard was about insurance wrangling, I would assume it truly will be available very soon.\ and that trials are complete.
Info is limited, even with the net. Do a search on correlogic systems. Hope this helps.

Then click on the latest news area. This is where the info I heard in San Francisco is mentioned.
