Life Line Screening Expands Product Base to DNA, Clinical Trials
Life Line Screening, a leader in community-based preventive healthcare, is deepening its delivery model of face-to-face patient care to provide access to advanced precision medicine through DNA testing and clinical trials.
This expansion is a natural outcome of the company’s already rigorous research arm, which has resulted in dozens of papers and presentations that analyze the company’s eight million record database. Research partners include faculty at NYU-Langone Medical Center, Oxford University, and University of California, San Francisco.
Life Line Screening pioneered the community-based screening market when it started more than twenty years ago, and helped set the standard for mobile vascular and laboratory testing.
The company’s unique in-person consultations, coupled with more than 15,000 community locations across the country, provide a rare opportunity to evaluate individuals for disease risk factors, perform on-site clinical testing, and utilize qualified health professionals such as nurse practitioners to educate consumers about clinical trial opportunities. Life Line Screening has already demonstrated the ability to quickly and effectively leverage its point of care platform to recruit for more than 60 clinical trials – outperforming more traditional approaches by orders of magnitude.
Sean Schultz, CEO of Life Line Screening says, “In addition to finding disease early and arming physicians with data for medical management, we are uniquely positioned in the healthcare continuum to disrupt traditional clinical trial recruitment models and help speed the delivery of new medications to market. We screen 50,000 – 60,000 people per month and have a relationship with them over decades. While we are in the early stages of this initiative, we are rapidly developing in sophistication. We have a significant amount of subjective data but more importantly, objective screening data as well. DNA offerings will further enhance the customer experience and provide more fruitful insights to the research community.”
“Our goal is to create a medical model that is tailored to the individual patient, with information that enables decisive action specific to that person,” says Schultz. “The advancements in technology are developing fast, and our adaptable model of patient outreach and service delivery allows us to jump ahead of other companies.”

Oxera Releases New Analysis on Europe’s Aviation Market, Revealing Increased Competition between Airports26.9.2017 19:13 | Tiedote
Oxera Consulting LLP has revisited the subject of airport competition in Europe, conducting research and analysis on the implications of recent market trends on the dynamics between airports and airlines in Europe. Oxera found that the European aviation market grew by 25% between 2010 and 2016, with key trends including the continuing rapid expansion of LCCs (low-cost carriers) and non-traditional hubs in the Middle East and Istanbul. These developments have contributed to an intensification of the rivalry between airports, across all channels through which they compete. With many of these trends now being long established, the competitive pressures on airports, of all sizes, across Europe are highly likely to endure and continue to develop, implying that regulators and government stakeholders will need to address this ‘new normal’.
