About

Although the diagnosis and therapy of HCC have being improved, the poor prognosis still remains. To reduce the mortality and improve the effectiveness of diagnosis and therapy, it is important to detect the protein biomarkers which are associated with HCC tumor progression and may be useful as potential diagnosis or therapeutic targets. SMP30 (senescence marker protein 30)(serum regucalcin), which we have previously identified from Guangxi HCC cDNA expression library by the SEREX approach, is one of the hepatocellular carcinoma associated antigens [4] Serum antibody response to SMP30 in various patients using the methods of Western-blot and ELISA and showed that antibody to SMP30 existed mainly in HCC patients (39.8%), especially in the one with alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) negative
