Cancer cells have a fundamentally different metabolism than noncancerous cells, and this difference is manifested in the endogenous metabolites they produce. Metabolomics aims to study metabolic differences in biological systems and has recently been applied to the discovery of tumor biomarkers in solid tumors. Previous studies reported the utility of the enzyme SSAT-1 as a cancer detection tool. SSAT-1 is a key protein involved in the synthesis of the polyamines spermine and spermidine that are involved in physiological cellular processes. This study led by Singhal and Rolfo et al. evaluated a panel of 14 metabolites associated in the SSAT-1/polyamine pathway that correctly discriminated between lung cancer patients from healthy controls, demonstrating the utility of metabolomics for lung cancer detection and adding further evidence on the role of liquid biopsy in cancer interception.
