Oncofetal markers for colon carcinomas are CSAp, a nonsulfated mucin, a second trimester fetal antigen, an altered thymidine kinase, a monosialoganglioside, and glycolipid antigens. For gastric carcinoma, they are basic fetoprotein, a sulfoglycoprotein, and for pancreatic carcinomas--POA, an oncofetal pancreatic antigen, and designated as CAPI, an oncofetal antigen. Tumor-associated markers for colon carcinomas are: UDP-galactosyltransferase and zinc glycinate marker; for gastric carcinomas… CONTINUE READING
