We determined urokinase-type plasminogen activator antigen (u-PA), gastrointestinal cancer-associated antigen (CA 19-9), and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in the plasma of patients with colorectal cancer at the time of clinical tumor detection and in a group of patients with Crohn's disease and analyzed the specificity of these tumor markers. u-PA, CA 19-9, and CEA were indicative for colorectal cancer in 75.5%, 51.5%, and 51.5% of tumor patients, respectively, with a specificity of 79.3%, 94… CONTINUE READING
