The fucosylated fraction of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP-L3) has been used as a diagnostic marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, a highly sensitive immunoassay using an on-chip electrokinetic reaction and separation by affinity electrophoresis (micro-total analysis system; μTAS) has been developed. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between changes in the serum AFP-L3 level measured by μTAS assay and recurrence of HCC after curative treatment. A total of 414 HCC… CONTINUE READING
