Study Finds MicroRNA Signatures for Blood-Based Lung Cancer Test

In a study published earlier this spring in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Carlo Croce, who will be a speaker at this year's Personalized Health Care National Conference at Ohio State, and colleagues investigated miRNA expression profiles in tissue and plasma samples from a completed spiral-computed tomography screening trial, identifying a set of signatures in blood that could predict cancer much earlier than CT alone and distinguish more aggressive forms of the disease.
