In order to verify the efficiency of the tumor markers CA 15.3 and CA 549 in the follow-up of breast cancer patients, it was necessary first to check the cutoff levels of each tumor marker in women with an increased age-related risk, but with no evidence of disease. From 132 serum samples in this age group, we confirmed the CA 549 cutoff level of 12.1 U/ml.(More)
