Combined use of lysyl oxidase, carcino-embryonic antigen, and carbohydrate antigens improves the sensitivity of biomarkers in predicting lymph node metastasis and peritoneal metastasis in gastric cancer


The purpose of this study was to determine whether lysyl oxidase (LOX) is a useful marker of metastasis in gastric cancer (GC) patients in combination with tumor markers carcino-embryonic antigen (CEA), carbohydrate antigen 724 (CA724), carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9), and carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125). There were 215 GC patients (67 without… (More)
