Kinetics of serum tumor marker concentrations and usefulness in clinical monitoring.

Abstract

Only a few markers have been instrumental in the diagnosis of cancer. In contrast, tumor markers play a critical role in the monitoring of patients. The patient's clinical status and response to treatment can be evaluated rapidly using the tumor marker half-life (t(1/2)) and the tumor marker doubling time (DT). This report reviews the interest of… (More)
