Abstract

The use of biomarkers in the field of disease detection is a growing field in bioanalytical chemistry. In this study the relative quantities of amino acids in urine were compared between healthy control samples with those of breast cancer patients in order to determine whether there is a correlation between the levels of these biomarker compounds and breast cancer. Given a significant change in the abundance of these chemicals, they may provide modern precision medicine a new way of detecting early onset breast cancer.
