Biomarkers for Early Detection of Liver Cancer: Focus on Clinical Evaluation
Abstract:This review summarises the screening methods from hepatic ultrasonography to serological biomarkers for early detection of liver cancer and focuses on evaluation of biomarkers ability. The development of novel biomarkers according to the 5-phase program defined by the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) is also outlined in this review.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
