Recurrences occurred in 35 patients, associated with(More)
New tumour markers are continually discovered in research laboratories and then clinically evaluated on a small scale. In the case of positive results, the best of them are commercially available some time later and join the existing markers, with a highly variable half-life of interest! However, for the clinician, it has become very hard to objectively(More)
