Combined evaluation of preoperative serum sialyl-Tn antigen and carcinoembryonic antigen levels is prognostic for gastric cancer patients.

Abstract

We have found that elevation of preoperative serum sialyl-Tn antigen (STN) levels is associated with a poor prognosis for gastric cancer patients, and these high levels remain in the advanced stage of the disease. We have now examined findings with the combined assay of STN and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels with regard to prediction of the prognosis… (More)
