Diagnostic significance of alpha1-fetoprotein, bile antigen VIII and Australia (HB) antigen in primary cancer of the liver.

Abstract

The diagnostic significance of the presence of alpha1-fetoprotein in the serum of patients with primary hepatic tumors was investigated. The presence in the serum of bile antigen VIII correlated with the clinical state might suggests a cholangioma. Antigen HB(Australia) being seldom encountered in the hepatomas from our geographical area cannot be implicated in the process of viral oncogenesis.
