CONTEXT There are 2 general types of assays measuring MUC1 gene-derived glycoprotein: assays for cancer antigen (CA) 15-3, which are sandwich assays, and assays for CA 27.29, which are competitive assays. These 2 types of assays measure slightly different parts of this tandem-repeat molecule. Across-method assay differences hinder the exchange of patient test values among integrated health care networks and among countries. OBJECTIVE This report evaluates the method differences among these… CONTINUE READING
