  • Proteomic strategies and challenges in tumor metastasis research
    Hudler, Petra, 1976- ; Goršič, Maša ; Komel, Radovan
    The rapidly evolving field of proteomics offers new approaches to understanding the pathogenesis of cancer and metastatic disease. Although numerous tumor markers have been identified with different ... genomic methods in the past, most are either not specific or sensitive enough to be used in routine clinical setting. The rationale for proteomic profiling is based on the fact that proteins represent the dynamic state of the cells, reflecting pathophysiological changes in the disease more accurately than genomic and epigenetic alterations. Emerging proteomic techniques allow simultaneous assessment of a large number of proteins at one time. The study of protein profiles in complex systems, such as plasma, serum or tissues of cancer patients is likely to become valuable for monitoring the response of patients during treatment or for detecting recurrence of the disease.
