Similarly, 72% of the adjacent tissue was predicted as aberrant. These data suggest that SELDI proteomic analysis can identify potential changes in the continuum from HNSCC to histologically benign tissue that otherwise would not be apparent on standard histology. 018), concluding that SELDI proteomic profiling could be a significant adjunct to standard histopathologic diagnosis and may be useful in predicting clinical outcome. SELDI analysis and classification algorithms have therefore been established by several groups to allow high throughput with robust sensitivity and specificity in differentiating serum samples between HNSCC patients and control patients.
