PURPOSE To discover diagnostic biomarkers associated with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), we searched for autoantibodies preferentially present in stage I patients compared with patients with advanced-stage disease. Here we describe an autoantibody against complement factor H (CFH) and this autoantibody's association with early-stage NSCLC. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Immunoblots were used to detect autoantibodies in the sera of stage I NSCLC patients. An autoantibody recognizing a… CONTINUE READING
