Proteomic analysis of resectable non-small cell lung cancer: post resection serum samples may be useful in identifying potential markers.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle



Surface-enhanced laser desorptionyionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF-MS) can be used to analyse peptides and proteins in clinical samples. A prospective study was undertaken on patients undergoing curative resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC): we used SELDI-TOF-MS to compare the proteomic profiles of serum from these patients both before surgical resection and after resection (disease-free) to identify potential biomarkers. Student t-tests were used, and a P-value of
