The purpose of this research was to investigate the presence of G Protein-Coupled Receptor 55 (GPR55) in patients suffering from skin Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) compared to healthy people. In a comparative study the presence of GPR55 in plasma samples of patients using Human GPR55 ELISA kit were established. A total of 10 patients and 10 healthy people were included in the study. The study exhibited that GPR55 protein is present in the plasma of SCC patients. The results of the study suggest that the detection of GPR55 can be utilized as a biomarker for detection of SCC.
