OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of simultaneous measurements of high-sensitivity des-gamma-carboxy prothrombin (H-DCP) and Lens culinaris agglutinin A-reactive alpha-fetoprotein (AFP-L3) in small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Sixty-one patients with small HCCs < or = 2 cm in diameter and 134 controls (chronic hepatitis: 59 cases; cirrhosis: 75 cases) were examined. H-DCP was measured by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (cut-off 40 mAU/ml (milli-arbitrary units/ml… CONTINUE READING
