Oncimmune, a leading immunodiagnostics group that specialises in the early detection of cancer, recently commissioned world-renowned photographer Karena Perronet-Miller to document stories of hope for some of the participants in the ECLS study in lung cancer. This study is believed to be the largest randomised trial of a blood biomarker for early cancer detection.
These images and accompanying stories were showcased at the Proud Central Gallery in London from 10–18th February, and now they are available to view in an online gallery exhibition. Oncimmune is delighted to invite you to visit the online exhibition and view for yourself the touching stories of those that took part in this ground-breaking trial.
“Oncimmune launches online photo exhibition: Portraits of hope and survival from early lung cancer detection.“
The Early detection of Cancer of the Lung Scotland (ECLS) study demonstrated how the technology of EarlyCDT® Lung, a simple and affordable autoantibody blood test, can detect lung cancer early to directly save lives.
Behind the science of the ECLS study are thousands of human stories. These are the stories of the medical professionals who worked relentlessly to identify people who met the criteria for the study, invited them to take part, undertook tests as well as monitoring their progress. But most importantly, these are the stories of the people themselves who took part, as well as their families, friends and support networks.
These stories illustrate the unmet patient need for diagnosing lung cancer in its early stages. Oncimmune is delighted to invite you to view these images and stories.
Petition for an affordable lung cancer screening programme
For your information, alongside the exhibition, Oncimmune has launched a petition to the UK, Scottish, Northern Ireland and Welsh governments as well as to the NHS to request the rollout of an affordable, nationwide lung cancer screening programme. With 35,000 people dying from lung cancer in the UK every year, such a programme could save thousands of lives. If you'd like to demonstrate your support, the petition can be signed here.
