Reliability of immunoradiometric assays for sex-hormone binding globulin, androstenedione, 17-Beta estradiol and tumor-markers cea and cb15.3 to assess the biological response of megestrol-acetate treatment in patients with advanced breast-cancer.

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of megestrol acetate administration on the serological assessment of some sex steroid hormones in women with advanced hormone-sensitive breast cancer. The serum levels of 17-beta estradiol, androstenedione and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) were measured by means of radioimmunometric assays, before and during drug… (More)
