Endostatin, best known as an inhibitor of angiogenesis, has elevated serum levels in several cancers. Overexpression of endostatin and its parent extracellular matrix protein, collagen XVIII have been associated with poor prognosis in NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer).

Serum endostatin levels may be useful markers for NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer). Endostatin is also a member of a 12 protein panel that can discriminate NSCLC from controls with 91% sensitivity and 84% specificity in cross-validated training and 89% sensitivity and 83% specificity in a separate verification set, with similar performance for early and late stage NSCLC.
