Many laboratory studies using PLCO biospecimens have been conducted and are continually ongoing. For each of these studies, a set of cases was selected and matched to a comparable group of controls. Their biospecimens were then assayed for various analyte measures. Once an investigator has published his findings, the results become part of the overall PLCO database and are available to other investigators. For some such published studies, these lab results and corresponding population selection data can be found here.

For each dataset, a Data Dictionary that describes the data is publicly available. In order to obtain the actual data in SAS or CSV format, you must begin a data-only request. Data will be delivered once the project is approved and data transfer agreements are completed.

The following Lab Results data are available by request:

  1. Ovarian Biomarkers
  2. Vitamin D
  3. Sex Hormones
  4. Multiplex Immune Marker Panel Studies
