North Shore-LIJ research collaboration with Correlogic Systems to advance ovarian cancer blood test

HUNTINGTON, NY The North Shore-Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Research Institute, a disease-oriented biomedical research institution, and Correlogic Systems, Inc., a Bethesda, MD-based clinical proteomics company that has pioneered the development and application of pattern recognition in disease detection, today announced a collaboration to advance the final development of a blood test for the early detection of ovarian cancer.

This first test using Correlogic's hidden patterns approach and technology is currently undergoing extensive validation. The test has received worldwide attention because of its novel approach to disease detection and the critical need for an early detection test for ovarian cancer, which kills more than 16,000 women each year.

Under this initiative, researchers expect to collect blood samples from several hundred women over the next two years. Samples will be analyzed immediately to expand validation of the blood test, and in subsequent months to provide additional information that may help extend clinical use of the test.

The North Shore-LIJ Health System, the parent of the North Shore-LIJ Research Institute, treats more than 11,000 women annually for gynecologic conditions in its hospitals, and countless thousands more in its doctors' private offices, with almost 200 new patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. With its extensive access to this population of patients, North Shore-LIJ will invite all women undergoing specific gynecologic surgery, women at high risk who are not undergoing surgery, and women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer to participate in this research effort by providing blood samples for scientific evaluation. As lead investigator of this project, John Lovecchio, MD, chief of gynecologic oncology for the North Shore-LIJ Health System, is playing a pivotal role.

"Upon validation, this blood test can dramatically change the lives of women at high risk for ovarian cancer," sai
