12020804

Clinical Trial Investigator Name
Joshua Melson, MD

Clinical Trial Title

Onconome: Collection of Blood Samples from Subjects at an Elevated Risk for Colorectal Cancer (CRC)



Clinical Trial Protocol Description

Onconome, Inc. is currently developing a serum-based assay for the early detection of colorectal cancer (CRC). This assay uses a novel protein biomarker panel comprised of seven proteins previously identified as serum biomarkers for predicting the probability of CRC. Thus far, the assay has been developed using 431 serum samples comprised of normal and CRC samples. The purpose of this pre-IDE study is to collect an additional pool of samples that may be used to further develop this serum-based assay. Subjects will be compensated for their time and effort.
