A review of patients operated on for colorectal cancer disclosed poorly differentiated histologies in those whose preoperative and postoperative carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels were no elevated, even in the presence of metastatic disease. CEA was therefore, of little prognostic value or predictive of disease recurrence in these patients. The amount of CEA in tumor tissue of 17 patients with poorly differentiated colorectal cancer was estimated with the immunoperoxidase staining technique… CONTINUE READING
