Breast cancer patients (n = 224) aged 28 to 81 were postoperatively followed up with serial determinations of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), tissue polypeptide antigen (TPA), and urinary hydroxyproline (OHP). The clinical usefulness of these tumor markers to diagnose and monitor distant metastases was compared with that of the imaging techniques commonly used to monitor breast cancer patients (bone scanning [BS], liver echography [LE], chest radiograph, and skeletal radiograph).
