  1. aMarkers were discovered through two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE) using the serum of breast cancer patients. bMarkers were discovered through surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionisation time-of-flight (SELDI-TOF) mass spectrometry. cMarkers were selected using literature search.
