Mesothelioma is a malignant lung cancer that is commonly associated with previous asbestos exposure. Often it is not diagnosed until too late to treat in a patient. Calretinin has recently been in the spotlight as a potential biomarker for early detection of mesothelioma.

Two recent studies used Eagle Bioscience’s Calretinin ELISA Assay kit analyzing the accuracy of using Calretinin as a prediagnostic technique for mesothelioma:

  • Prediagnostic detection of mesothelioma by circulating calretinin and mesothelin – a case-control comparison nested into a prospective cohort of asbestos-exposed workers.
