Abstract:

The three challenges that we faced before are 1. To consistently differentiate peak differences in NA detected by Surface-Enhance Laser DesorptionIonization SELDI between the two groups of women breast cancer vs. non- cancer. 2. To identify and characterize the peak proteins that are differentially expressed in cancerous and non-cancerous NA. 3. To develop software program that can consistently identify the true peak from noise and quantify the intensity of each peak in a reproducible fashion.
