HYPOXIA TUMOUR MARKERS
Buffa F., West C., Miller C., Harris A.
The present invention relates to a method for assessing a hypoxia phenotype of a tumour of a subject in which the gene expression of between 3 and 50 hypoxia-related genes of a sample obtained from said tumour of the subject is determined, thereby obtaining a sample expression profile of said hypoxia-related genes. The sample gene expression profile is then compared with a reference expression profile of said hypoxia-related genes. The hypoxia-related genes comprise at least SLC2A1, VEGFA and PGAM1. Probes, arrays and kits for use in the method are also disclosed.
