Over a last decade, intense interest has been focused on bio-marker discovery and their clinical uses. This interest is accel-erated by the completion of human genome project and the progress of techniques in proteomics. Especially, cancer bio-marker discovery is eminent in this field due to its anticipated critical role in early diagnosis, therapy guidance, and prognosis monitoring of cancers. Among cancers, lung cancer, one of the top three major cancers, is the one showing the highest mortal-ity because of failure in early diagnosis. Numerous potential DNA biomarkers such as hypermethylations of the promoters and mutations in K-

Systematic searches for plasma proteins that are biological indicators, or biomarkers, for cancer are underway. The difficulties caused by the complexity of biological-fluid proteomes and tissue proteomes (which contribute proteins to plasma) and by the extensive heterogeneity among diseases, subjects and levels of sample procurement are gradually being overcome. This is being achieved through rigorous experimental design and in-depth quantitative studies. The expected outcome is the development...

Genomic and proteomic analysis of normal and diseased tissues have yielded an abundance of molecular information for diagnostic and potential therapeutic targets. Changing the target of analysis from poorly accessible cells within tissues to easily accessible vascular endothelium has theoretical advantages in tissue-specific targeting. In this study, we sought to map a large-scale proteome of microvascular endothelium in human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and normal lung tissues, and ident...

Availability of a suite of biomarkers for early detection, stratification into distinct subtypes, and monitoring progression or response to therapy promises significant improvements in clinical outcomes for cancer patients. However, despite the recent progress in proteomics technologies based on mass spectrometry (MS), discovery of novel clinical assessment tools has been slow. This is, partly due to the inherent difficulties in working with blood as the biospecimen for candidate discovery. A be...

The study of expressed proteins in neoplasia is undergoing a revolution with the advent of proteomic analysis. Unlike genomic studies where individual changes may have no functional significance, protein expression is closely aligned with cellular activity. This perspective will review proteomics as a method of detecting markers of neoplasia with a particular emphasis on lung cancer and the potential to sample the lung by exhaled breath condensate (EBC). EBC collection is a simple, new, and noni...

Proteomics methods based on MS have emerged as the preferred strategy for discovery of diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic protein biomarkers. Most biomarker discovery studies use unbiased, “identity-based” approaches that rely on high performance mass spectrometers and extensive sample processing (1–3). Semiquantitative comparisons of protein relative abundance between disease and control patient samples are used to identify proteins that are differentially expressed (4–9) and, thus, to pop...

Although significant progress has been made in protein quantification using mass spectrometry during recent years, absolute protein quantification in complex biological systems remains a challenging task in proteomics. The use of stable isotope-labeled standard peptide is the most commonly used strategy for absolute quantification, but it might not be suitable in all instances. Here we report an alternative strategy that employs a stable isotope-labeled intact protein as an internal standard to ...

Summary Aberrant methylation of promoter CpG islands is known to be a major inactivation mechanism of the tumor suppressor and tumor-related genes. Some published studies suggest a relationship to exist between the methylation status of several genes and the prognosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC); hypermethylation of the specific genes may be expected to serve as a biomarker for the prognosis, after a curative resection of NSCLC. To determine the relationship between the methylation sta...

Elevated levels of plasma alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) correlate with a poor prognosis of various cancers. Herein, we investigated effects of exogenous AAT on non-small lung cancer cell lines with high (H1975) and very low (H661) baseline expression of SERPINA1 gene encoding AAT protein. Comparison of cells grown for 3 weeks in a regular medium versus medium supplemented with 2 mg/ml of AAT revealed that in the presence of AAT cells acquire better proliferative properties, resistance to staurosporin...
Cancer proteomics is a diverse and challenging field. It provides the promising tool that aids in the understanding of the disease, yet early-stage diagnosis is still a question and crucial for successful treatment of cancer. Genomics aided with proteomics has emerged as a larger platform for understanding the disease spread, proliferation, metastasis, genomic aberrations, mutational changes, therapeutics, design drug delivery system, proteomic anomalies, structural changes, and signaling pathwa...

The early diagnosis of lung cancer has been a critical problem in clinical practice for a long time and identifying differentially expressed gene as disease marker is a promising solution. However, the most existing gene differential expression analysis (DEA) methods have two main drawbacks: First, these methods are based on fixed statistical hypotheses and not always effective; Second, these methods can not identify a certain expression level boundary when there is no obvious expression level g...
