A human serum DNA-binding protein (C3DP) derived from complement component C3 has been found in elevated concentrations in the sera of individuals with malignant diseases. An assay system has been devised which reveals quantitative values of serum C3DP levels. Results obtained using this system indicate that normal human sera have an average C3DP level of 242 mug/ml (range, 40 to 146), whereas sera from individuals with active carcinomas have an average C3DP level of 242 mug/ml (range, 146 to… CONTINUE READING
