Mass spectrometry-based analyses of the low-molecular-weight fraction of serum proteome allow identifying proteome profiles (signatures) that are potentially useful in detection and diagnostics of cancer. Here we compared serum proteome profiles of healthy donors and patients with three different types of cancer aiming to identify peptide signatures that were either common for all cancer samples or specific for cancer type.
