Abstract

BACKGROUND: Carbohydrate antigen 15-3 (CA15-3), a specific breast cancer-related biomarker in serum, can provide direct information to monitor a patient's postoperative status and can predict recurrence and metastasis of breast cancer. The conventional Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) is an effective approach for CA15-3 detection, but there is a high limit of detection which is more than 1 U mL-1. Therefore, a convenient, highly sensitive and specific CA15-3 detection method is needed for earlier prognoses of breast cancer. OBJECTIVE: In this work, we aim to develop a novel sensitive and selective immunofluorescence assay for the highly effective detection of CA15-3. METHOD: We pre-..
