Comparative analysis of tumor markers and evaluation of their predictive value in patients with colorectal cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We evaluated the feasibility of CEA/CK20 mRNA and CEA/CA19-9 proteins as tumor markers for colorectal cancer by detecting tumor-specific mRNAs in circulating tumor cells and secreted tumor-specific proteins in the peripheral blood of colorectal cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Peripheral blood was obtained from 23 healthy volunteers and 46… (More)
