Rezumat proiect: "In the priority area of cancer research to provide novel insights into genes, proteins and glycans associated with the grade and stage of a given tumor, mass spectrometry (MS) develops continuosly era as one of the most powerful analytical procedure for structural elucidation of molecules originating from biological matrices and involved in cancer ethiopathogeny, especially after the introduction of electrospray ionization(ESI) technique and microfluidic based systems capable in sequencing minute amounts of biological material. The current inventory of cancer biomarkers consists mostly of specific proteins associated with malignancy and contains much less carbohydrate structures. Although studies of glycosphingolipid (GSL) composition in primary human tumours in general, and brain tumors, in particular, have been performed, GSL profile of human brain metastases, the major cause of morbidity and death for cancer patients, is lacking investigation. In this context, this project calls for the use of high performance MS methods in association with high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) and densitometry, for the determination of specific GSL expression and quantification as well as their alteration in brain metastases vs. healthy brain in order to find relevant tumor-associated glyco-epitopes as new prognostic biomarkers that could identify patients who are at the highest risk for developing metastases and to create a database to be useful in clinical investigations."
