Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0132916A2] The present invention relates to an improved enzymatic diagnostic assay to detect carcinoma by measuring various lysophospholipids, including lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), in a patient. In a preferred embodiment, this assay measures the human plasma level of LPA in an automated format with a minimal number of reagents and with reduced incubation periods. The present invention also comprises several additional technical improvements to the current LPA assays disclosed in the prior art.
