Determination of optimum cutoff levels of plasma des-gamma-carboxy prothrombin and serum alpha-fetoprotein for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma using receiver operating characteristic curves.

Abstract

Optimum cutoff levels for plasma des-gamma-carboxy (abnormal) prothrombin (DCP) and serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) were determined by analyzing receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves to discriminate between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and benign hepatic conditions. Plasma DCP levels in 200 patients with HCC and 197 control patients with benign… (More)
