Urinary carcinoembryonic antigen-like activity was increased (more than 1.5 ng. per ml.) in 61 per cent of patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. The frequency of abnormal carcinoembryonic antigen values correlated with the extent and the grade of the tumor. However, urinary tract infection can produce abnormal carcinoembryonic antigen values in non-cancer patients. The use of urinary carcinoembryonic antigen measurement and urine cytologic examination for diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
