Project Summary

Proteomic testing has been proposed for a wide variety of applications, including for determining risk, diagnosis, helping select optimal treatments, and determining response to treatments. In response to increased attention to the potential of proteomic testing, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) commissioned a narrative review and evidence mapping regarding the application of proteomics in certain cancers and cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this report is to examine the evidence currently supporting approved proteomic tests in the United States for cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as proteomic tests in these medical fields that may be available in the near term.

This narrative review section of this report focuses on different proteomic applications and the evidence mapping section through systematic search and selection, maps the evidence currently supporting approved proteomic tests in the United States for cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as those that may be available in the near term.

About the Emerging Technologies and Therapeutics Reports
The Emerging Technologies and Therapeutics Reports provide timely summaries of evidence supporting new drugs, devices, and other healthcare technologies that are recently in use or may be available in the near term in the United States. The documents also identify gaps that need to be addressed for the technologies or therapeutics to move forward.

Project Status
Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
State State The state where the project originates, or where the primary institution or organization is located. View Glossary
