In the era of XXI century, when modern imaging techniques allows to increase detection of upper and lower respiratory tract cancer, still almost 75% of patients are diagnosed at an advantage stage. A very important problem in diagnostic practice is a general trend to use routine methods and the lack of new techniques exploration. Nowadays laboratory diagnosticians known defects of used methods which result limited effectiveness. Despite this fact too little attention is paid to the confrontation of biomedical and physicochemical views what follows to develop new methods within the framework of interdisciplinary research.

Late detection of cancer changes is often associated with inability to take effective treatment. Most modern measurement techniques based on liquid chromatography combined with mass spectrometry gives opportunity to detect millions particles of substances. These techniques are being used by scientists from all over the world to create database of proteins, which are characteristic for almost all pathological changes.
