Is there a specific metabolic signature of breast cancer in blood?

In partnership between Prof. Ismael Dale,, Dept. of Gynecology, Federal University of Sao Paulo, and BIOCRATES novel metabolic blood biomarkers have been discovered. They could potentially be used for low-invasive diagnosis and prognostic evaluation of breast cancers have been discovered using the Biocrates AbsoluteIDQ® p180 Kit.
Based on cancer specific metabolic changes, Prof. Dale and BIOCRATES identified individual blood metabolic signatures (=biomarkers) that could help for screening and/ or diagnosing breast cancer, identification of intrinsic subtypes, assessment of tumor activity as well as treatment response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
It has been achieved to provide biomarkers signatures by measuring the individual concentrations and/or ratios of certain metabolites in blood samples. The biomarkers of the study make it possible to predict whether a patient is likely to reach complete pathological response (pCR) to neoadjuvant chemotherapy or stable disease and/or progression (SDPR). Further, it has been found out that intrinsic subtypes of breast cancer tumors can be distinguished on the basis of their specific metabolic signatures.
In fact, the quantitative measurement of the endogenous metabolites contained in the respective sets of biomarkers allows a more sensitive and selective, and therefore more reliable assessment of breast cancer. The findings of the study have been presented at the recent Biomarker Conference in Munich.

Transplantation Medicine
Invasive methods for diagnosis are risky and unpleasant for patients. By using the Biocrates AbsoluteIDQ p180 Kit, Blydt-Hansen et al. could show that urinary metabolomics has great potential to become an important tool for the noninvasive diagnosis of T cell mediated rejection in pediatric kidney transplant recipients.

Metabolomics & Cell Signaling
Connecting biochemical pathways with receptor induced intracellular kinase signaling is a great challenge in molecular medicine. Baumann et al. could show that changes in the metabolome affect kinase signaling. Here, the Biocrates AbsoluteIDQ p180 Kit enables reliable and reproducible data analysis to support and improve cell signaling research.
