An abstract from AroCell has been accepted for poster presentation on the American Association of Cancer Research 2019 (AACR 2019) held from March 29 to April 3 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Study compares AroCell TK210 ELISA with TK-Liaison assay.
The study entitled “The Assay of Thymidine Kinase 1 in Sera from Subjects with Hematological and Solid Tumors with AroCell TK 210 ELISA: Comparison with TK-Liaison Assay and its Clinical Implications” by Jagarlamudi KK et al. shows that the AroCell TK 210 ELISA has a higher sensitivity for TK1 in sera from subjects with solid tumors and a similar sensitivity and specificity to the TK-Liaison assay for hematological malignancies. This indicates that the AroCell TK210 ELISA may facilitate the application of TK1 as a biomarker for solid tumors. Furthermore, the robustness and convenience of the ELISA not only overcomes the limitations of TK-Liaison but also widens the clinical applications of TK1 in cancer management.
The study included a large group of serum samples (N=273; blood donors (N=102), hematological tumors (N=51), breast cancer (N=60) and urological conditions (N=60)) analyzed for TK1 protein by TK 210 ELISA and TK1 activity by TK-Liaison assay.
