Many laboratory studies using PLCO biospecimens have been conducted and are continually ongoing through the EEMS program. 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 or her findings, the results become part of the overall PLCO database and are available to other investigators.
Please note, for each of these studies markers were measured independently using various platforms as referenced in their corresponding publications. The publications can be found by clicking on the study ID for each project. Please use caution when pooling data across different case-control studies.
For some such published studies, these lab results and corresponding population selection data can be found on this site and descriptions of their population, analyte measurements and publications can be found and requested here. This list will grow as additional studies are published and prepped for download.
Additionally, a few sets of analytes from various studies have been grouped together and can be requested as a package.
While genomic data are not currently available through CDAS, some data are available. More information on how to access these datasets can be found on the Genome Wide Association Studies page.
Data from other published EEMS studies not currently posted on this site may be available and can be requested by submitting a Data-Only project.
