Seven CA 125 immunoassays were compared for their clinical performance. CA 125 concentrations were determined in 289 serum samples obtained from women with benign pelvic tumors (samples from 98 patients) and patients with various cancers (samples from 111 patients). In the range of 0-1000 kilounits/L, all assays tested were linearly correlated, with correlation coefficients ranging from 0.89 to 0.99. In relation to the original Centocor CA 125 assay, there was an overall tendency to measure… CONTINUE READING
