Carcinoembryonic antigen, arginine vasopressin and calcitonin as markers of early small-cell lung cancer relapse.

Abstract

Patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) underwent serial blood monitoring during remission: 66 were tested for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and calcitonin (CTN), including 40 who were concomitantly tested for arginine vasopression (AVP) as well. 83% of the patients had at least one assay elevated prior to induction therapy. By serial monitoring, blood… (More)
