Objectives
To identify the proteomic tumor markers of UADTSCC that are differentially expressed in both UADTSCC primary tumor and sera of patients. These differentially expressed proteins can provide information on the molecular mechanism of carcinogenesis of UADTSCC and may also be used clinically for screening of cancer and monitoring recurrence after treatment.
