Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19806185A1] The invention relates to a sandwich immunoassay for determining the quantity of fucosylised protein (fuc-protein) in a biological sample and to corresponding reagent sets. A preferred version of the invention relates to an immunoassay for assaying fucosylised alpha -foetoprotein (AFP) which is significant in the early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a common form of cancer. Said immunoassay is characterized in that it uses a lectin selected from the group consisting of Ulex-europaeus agglutinin (UEA), Lotus-tetragonolobus agglutinin (LTA) and Anguilla-anguilla agglutinin (AAA).
