Potential Use of Soluble CD 44 in Serum as Indicator of Tumor Burden and Metastasis in Patients with Gastric or Colon Cancer

  • Published 2007

Abstract

Soluble CD44 is present in the serum of normal individuals (2.7 +_ 1.1 riM). The concentration of soluble CD44 in the serum is elevated in patients with advanced gastric (24.2 + 9.8 riM) or colon cancer (30.8 411 riM). Serum CD44 concentration correlated with tumor metastasis and tumor burden. Surgical resection of tumors resulted in decreases in serum CD44… (More)
