Proteomic Data Resources for EDRN Ovary Cancer Researchers within the EDRN
No involved investigator sites defined.
This project will generate a highly valuable data resource and make it available to all EDRN ovarian cancer researchers. The resource will include comprehensive proteomic (tandem mass spectrometry, MS/MS) data generated from plasma samples that have been collected between four months and four years prior to clinical detection of ovarian cancer. These pre-clinical samples, provided from the Beta Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial (CARET) prospective study, will be interrogated using IPAS, the proteomic profiling method developed by the Hanash Laboratory and with the quantitative methods developed by the McIntosh laboratory. In addition, we will combine these pre-clinical data with already completed IPAS interrogations of plasma collected at the time of ovarian cancer diagnosis. Thus together we will provide information on both pre-clinical and clinical behavior of a large number of proteins. Based on our preliminary work we are able to quantify over 500 plasma proteins in each of these experiments, many of which are putative ovarian cancer biomarkers, showing the platform is capable of providing useful information regarding biomarker candidates.
