  • Abstract The carcinoembryonic antigen of the human digestive tract (CEA), described by Gold as a glycoprotein specific for digestive carcinomatous and foetal tissues, was found to have common antigenic determinants with a glycoprotein of smaller size extracted from normal adult tissues. This observation suggests that only a part of the CEA molecule carries the onco-foetal specificity. It also has practical implications regarding the radioimmunoassay for CEA used for the diagnosis of certain… CONTINUE READING
