Before the completion of 1 year of follow up, 12 patients had relapsed. The serum dosage of CEA at diagnosis has low sensitivity because patients with colorectal carcinoejbriogenico can have normal levels of serum CEA. Demonstration of tumor-specific antigens in human colonic carcinomata by immunological tolerance and absorption techniques. Value of carcinoembryonic antigen in the management of colorectal cancer.

Although the information provided by the tumor stage is still the most valuable prognostic variable today, the preoperative elevated CEA level provides additional information on the prospects for survival, suggesting a more aggressive tumor and probably identifying a subgroup of patients for adjuvant therapy.

Tumor markers are molecules usually glycoproteinsthe levels of which may be elevated in the presence of a cancer, either as a host’s reaction to the tumor or as a product of antigenno tumor itself. These molecules, whose serum concentration also depends on the biological variability of the patient, are detectable in different biological fluids. Serum determination of CEA is the the most widely used tumor marker in these patients. El uso de los MT tiene algunas limitaciones: Thirty years after its description by Gold and Freedman 1the CEA remains the tumor marker most studied in colorectal carcinoembrigenico, its main function being the monitoring of patients after the surgical resection of the tumor.


Recibido el 30 de diciembre de Es obvio que este MT ideal no existe carcinoembrogenico el momento. Patients with high CEA serum levels before surgery could have a higher incidence of recurrence than patients with normal levels.

J Compot Assist Tomogr. We can say that, in general, due to the antigeo of high diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, tumor markers are not helpful for an early detection of neoplasms, but they do help to confirm a diagnosis already established carcinoembriigenico more sensitive methods.

Cancer and venous thromboembolism. Most markers also have a prognostic value at the time of diagnosis, since their concentration is related to tumor size. CEA as a prognostic index in colorectal cancer. The clinical value of tumour markers in the management of ovarian cancer. The results from this series are consistent with several published works.

Statistical analysis consisted of Kruskal-Wallys analysis of variance or Chi square test. Se pueden realizar dos mediciones: The relationship between high CEA serum levels in the preoperative period and worse prognosis has been investigated in several studies 2,3,4,5so far without definite conclusion.

Eur J Int Med. All had operable cancer. Extensive screening for occult malignant disease in idiopathic venous thromboembolism: MT de muy elevada especificidad y sensibilidad. En el tercer grupo, esto es, el de los MT de baja especificidad se incluyen los MT con una sensibilidad dependiente del estadio, pero cuya especificidad es baja, incluso en las fases avanzadas de la enfermedad.


Thus, markers with high levels of sensitivity and specificity would allow for the detection of patients with cancer, and for their differentiation from healthy individuals or from patients with benign pathologies.

As in the majority of previous studies 2,4we also did not observed any differences of CEA levels when comparing sex, age, tumor site, tumor diameter or histological differentiation. Review of commonly used serum tumor markers and their relevance for image interpretation.

We observed, as in previous studies, that The sensitivity was lower than in the studies of Wang 9 and Tate 10 but similar to McCall Dis Colon Rectum ; The main function of this marker is to detect early recurrence during follow up after radical surgery. An audit of tumour marker requests in Northern Ireland.

Guidelines for the use of tumour markers. CEA levels were elevated in 7 of the 12 patients who developed liver metastases. Form Med Contin Aten Amtigeno. Journal Cancer ; 32A: All the patients were followed for at least two years or up to death.

The preoperative CEA level as a prognostic index is not yet defined, although many authors believe that the CEA level offers an additional criterion for evaluating the prognosis of colorectal cancer.

National Cancer Institute Consultado Ene Plasma CEA in the post-surgical monitoring of colorectal carcinoma. Northover 13 reported that the risk of recurrent disease within two years of primary surgery was more than double in those whose serum CEA was raised preoperatively.
