  • BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the sensibility and specificity of a new assay in the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and predictability of resection rates. In addition, the serum CA19-9 levels was utilised as a prognostic indicator. METHODOLOGY Serum expression of the tumor marker CA 19-9 was studied in 2119 patients. RESULTS The discriminating capacity of CA 19-9 between benign and malignant disease was high, especially in patients with pancreatic cancer (n = 347… CONTINUE READING
