Certain minuscule cancer signals easily evade detection, but perhaps no longer. Biomarkers made of glycoproteins are bound to get snared in the tentacles of this chemical octopus that chemists devised over several years. The monstrous molecule could also be a windfall for the rising field of glycoscience. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
