Therefore, identification of novel tumour markers for diagnosis and prognosis of Ovarian Cancer comprises the main focus of research efforts. Discovery of sensitive and specific biomarkers for Ovarian Cancer involves collaborations with hospitals and other research institutes, both locally and internationally. Glycan arrays are utilised to screen serum samples from Ovarian Cancer patients and isolate potential biomarkers of disease.
