CA 125 is found in body fluids in a variety of molecular weight forms. The largest species are found in normal abdominal fluid and cervical mucus. The present study therefore incorporated CA 125 derived from these sources as well as ascites fluid to investigate if the source of CA 125 influenced epitope characterization. Ascites-derived CA 125 varied in… CONTINUE READING
