Abstract The incidence of breast cancer has been increasing over the years. To control and monitor this disease several tumor biomarkers have been proposed for early diagnosis, patient follow-up and/or treatment guidance. The only serum breast cancer biomarker in current use is the cancer antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3). In this work a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP)-based electrochemical (voltammetric) sensor to monitor breast cancer was developed, based on direct surface imprinting of CA 15-3 on a… CONTINUE READING
