2011 SC4 DVD CoverApplications of Detection Theory in Diagnostics
This course defines false positives, false negatives and dichotomous test as well as sensitivity, specificity, limit-of-detection, and response time. Attendees will understand and analyze a dose-response curve, construct and analyze a Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve from raw data, define Positive Predictive Value (PPV) and Negative Predictive Value (NPV), and interpret detector performance trade-offs using a ROC curve.

Short Course 1Circulating Tumor Cells As Surrogate Endpoints In Clinical Trials
Recent trials using an FDA-cleared assay show that CTC number is a biomarker of prognosis and more predictive than posttherapy changes in PSA, raising the possibility that posttherapy changes in CTCs might represent an intermediate endpoint of treatment efficacy. The question of whether CTC counts are potential surrogates for survival is currently being addressed in the context of a phase 3 registration trial. Also under study are biologic profi ling of these tumors to explore the relationship between specific alterations in androgen receptor signaling and the response to novel agents targeting these alterations.
