Research Topic: Evaluation of diagnostic and monitoring utilities of total serum N-glycome and IgG glycopeptides, as biomarkers of epithelial ovarian cancer in a Kenyan cohort

The present study will attempt to evaluate the changes of the total serum glycome as well as the IgG glycopeptide in ovarian tumorigenesis with the aim of prospecting for a potential novel, efficient and affordable serum biomarker for detecting epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) in its budding stage. Besides, the study will also attempt to find a differential potential of glycome in discriminating the EOC from benign ovarian disease.

The overall long-term goal is to find an efficient and affordable glycan-based biomarker for detecting ovarian cancer in asymptomatic women towards reducing the mortalities associated with late stage diagnosis in Kenya.
