There is an important need to find relevant biomarkers that show high sensitivity and specificity for early diagnosis and prognosis of cancer. An immune response to cancer is elicited in humans, as demonstrated in part by the identification of autoantibodies against a number of tumor-associated antigens in sera from patients with different types of cancer. Identification of tumor-associated antigens and their cognate autoantibodies is a promising strategy for the discovery of relevant… CONTINUE READING
