Serum biomarker modulation following molecular targeting of epidermal growth factor and cyclooxygenase pathways: A pilot randomized trial in head and neck cancer
Oral Oncology , 06/26/2012
Moskowitz HS et al. – The results demonstrate the importance of a placebo group when assessing changes in expression of serum biomarkers. While multiplex platforms can provide quantitative information on a large number of serum analytes, results should be cautiously compared across platforms due to their intrinsic features. Furthermore, the dynamic range of expression of a single analyte is constrained in multiplex versus standard ELISA.
