Utilize the remaining specimens collected under the DCP protocol to develop and validate markers for the early detection of HCC

Specific Aims Aim 1: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of des-gamma carboxyprothrombin (DCP) for the diagnosis of early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Aim 2: To compare the accuracy of DCP and Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) for the diagnosis of early HCC. Aim 3: To determine whether demographic or etiology of underlying liver disease alter the expression of DCP or AFP.

There are currently no biomarkers annotated for this protocol.

No datasets are currently associated with this protocol.
