Protein profiling for hepatocellular carcinoma biomarker discovery in West African subjects

Abstract:

Background: Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is the third most common cause of cancer related death worldwide and is often diagnosed by measuring serum Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP); a stand-alone biomarker with limited diagnostic proficiency. To compensate for this, AFP is commonly used in conjunction with high performance imaging and radiological methods.
