A novel serum and tissue immunoglycomic biomarker panel to distinguish progressive Prostate Cancer

Project: Research project

Project Details


Aim 1: Determine the sensitivity and specificity of tissue/serum sMIC in predicting PSA recurrence (BCR) and/or variant (NE-like) progressive PCa. These assays will be done by immunohistochemistry for tissues and ELISA for serum. Aim 2: Identify and evaluate clinically and biologically significant N-glycan panels and autoantibodies in tissue and serum associated with BCR and/or NE-like PCa. We will determine N-glycan panels in the same tissue/serum cohorts as in Aim 1 using MALDI imaging mass spectrometry. Aim 3: Validate prognostic capacity of the identified panel of serum biomarkers. We will perform this validation study in three independent cohorts of PCa patient samples with annotated prognostic information.
