Based on the standard curve, levels of α4GnT mRNA ranging from 5 × 101 to 5 × 109 copies/mL were detected in a reaction tube.

As shown in Table 2, more than 74% of pancreatic cancer patients were positive for either α4GnT or CA19-9, and CEA and DU-PAN-1 were found to less frequently detect pancreatic cancer compared with α4GnT and CA19-9.

The Publisher apologizes for any confusion this may have caused.
