Biomarker 11-dh-TXB2 in Blood and Urine Samples From Patients With Prostate Cancer and Healthy Volunteers

2014-08-27 03:19:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and urine from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at a biomarker, 11-dh-TXB2, in blood and urine samples from patients with prostate cancer and healthy volunteers.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- To identify a potential novel marker of prostate cancer in the blood and urine, 11-dh-TXB2, to be used as a screening tool for prostate cancer as well as in detection of early relapse in patients previously treated for early-stage prostate cancer.

OUTLINE: Blood and urine samples are collected and analyzed for plasma and urinary 11-dh-TXB2 levels by HPLC and tandem-mass spectrometry.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Liquid chromatographic techniques which feature high inlet pressures, high sensitivity, and high speed.

A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

A microanalytical technique combining mass spectrometry and gas chromatography for the qualitative as well as quantitative determinations of compounds.

Fractionation of a vaporized sample as a consequence of partition between a mobile gaseous phase and a stationary phase held in a column. Two types are gas-solid chromatography, where the fixed phase is a solid, and gas-liquid, in which the stationary phase is a nonvolatile liquid supported on an inert solid matrix.

A method of separation of two or more substances by repeated distribution between two immiscible liquid phases that move past each other in opposite directions. It is a form of liquid-liquid chromatography. (Stedman, 25th ed)
