MALDI mass spectrometric imaging based identification of clinically relevant signals in prostate cancer using large-scale tissue microarrays.

To identify molecular features associated with clinico-pathological parameters and TMPRSS2-ERG fusion status in prostate cancer, we employed MALDI mass spectrometric imaging (MSI) to a prostate cancer tissue microarray (TMA) containing formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues samples from 1,044 patients for which clinical follow-up data were available. MSI… CONTINUE READING
