Clinical Trial 51993

Burlington, MA 01803


The NORBEN study aims to assess the accuracy and efficacy of a laboratory test using blood specimens from research participants. This study is evaluating an investigational laboratory test and device that aims to detect Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

The study is seeking participants who have at least one of a list of specific non-cancerous conditions, diagnosed in the past 5 years to serve as the control group. These categories are designed to test the TEST, to ensure it accurately detects only the biomarker for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and does not get confused by other diseases patients may have.
