Aberrant glycosylation on glycoproteins that are either presented on the surface or secreted by cancer cells is a potential source of disease biomarkers and provides insights into disease pathogenesis. N-Glycans of the total serum glycoproteins from advanced breast cancer patients and healthy individuals were sequenced by HPLC with fluorescence detection(More)
BACKGROUND Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) is currently an incurable condition that is primarily treated with palliative measures. Isolation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from the peripheral blood of these patients provides a predictive prognostic indicator, independent of the type of therapy, site of occurrence and biological characteristics of the(More)
One of the most urgent requirements in breast cancer is the development of a blood-based test for early detection and prognosis. Previously published results found a significant difference between specific glycan levels in patients with advanced breast cancer and healthy controls. The aim of this investigation was to address a more clinically relevant(More)
