They identified two proteins that occurred at noticeably higher levels in the metastatic cells than in the primary cancer cells.

According to the researchers, these two proteins could serve as potential biomarkers in a blood test aimed at predicting the spread of colon cancer.he scientists say this would allow for earlier intervention and treatment.

The study has appeared in ACS' Journal of Proteome Research, a monthly publication.
