Title: Can tNASP be used for cancer screening tests?
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Oleg Alekseev , School of Medicine

Tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) are proteins that elicit a humoral immune response when their expression is elevated in tumor progression. We have previously demonstrated that immunohistochemical detection of tNASP has high diagnostic sensitivity and specificity in ovarian cancer and prostate cancer cells and tissues. In the current project, ELISA is used to detect specific anti-tNASP serum antibodies in a variety of cancer tissue samples.
