Novel biomarkers, as additional tools to detect preclinical cancers, have the potential to revolutionize the way we diagnose and manage cancer in the future. The rapidly expanding field of cancer biomarker discovery prompted the establishment of the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) (Srivastava and Kramer, 2000). The purpose of the EDRN is to coordinate research among biomarker development laboratories, biomarker validation laboratories, clinical repositories, and population screening programs with the hope to facilitate collaboration and to promote efficiency and rigor in research.
