Blood-based RT-PCR assays of MN/CA9 or PSMA: clinical application in renal cancer patients.

OBJECTIVES To report a survey of blood-based RNAs obtained from common groups of control and renal cancer patients for expression of both MN/CA9 and prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) messenger RNAs. METHODS Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays for MN/CA9 and PSMA were performed on RNAs extracted from 81 blood samples (59… CONTINUE READING
