Although the tumor stage is today the most valuable prognostic variable in colorectal cancer, the preoperative CEA value can provide some additional information in the prognosis of the patient. Marcadores tumorales en el tumor de primario desconocido. Carcinoembryonic antigen monitoring among patients in multinstitutional adjuvant G. Si las cifras del marcador sufren un incremento continuo, se puede afirmar con bastante seguridad que el origen es tumoral.

In the group of patients with elevated preoperative CEA and recurrence, this occurred in the first year of follow up. In these patients the recurrence would be carcjnoembriogenico frequently in the first year of follow up. MT de muy elevada especificidad y sensibilidad. Es obvio que este MT ideal no existe por el momento.

Clinical application of tumour markers: The relationship between high CEA serum levels in the preoperative period and worse prognosis has been investigated in carcnioembriogenico studies 2,3,4,5so far without definite conclusion. This percentage was higher in the patients with nodal involvement Dukes C. ABSTRACT Tumor markers are molecules usually glycoproteinsthe levels of which may be elevated in the presence of a cancer, either as a host’s reaction to the tumor or as a product of the tumor itself.

Plasma CEA in the post-surgical monitoring of colorectal carcinoma. These molecules, whose serum concentration also depends on the biological variability of the patient, are detectable in different biological fluids.


Review of commonly used serum tumor markers and their relevance for image interpretation. Our aim is to review the tumor markers most commonly used in our clinical practice, as well catcinoembriogenico some agreed recommendations on the indication of their determination in various tumors.

The use of preoperative plasma CEA levels for the stratification carcineombriogenico patients after curative resection of colorectal cancers. La utilidad de los marcadores tumorales viene determinada por la sensibilidad y especificidad de cada uno de ellos. High serum CEA level before surgery is often associated with worse prognosis, in some studies.

El uso de los MT tiene algunas limitaciones: How to cite this article. Eur J Int Med.

carcinlembriogenico MT de baja especificidad. Northover 13 reported that the risk of recurrent disease within two years of primary surgery was more than double in those whose serum CEA was raised preoperatively. The sensitivity, specificity, the positive predictive value and the negative predictive value are described in Table 5.

Disease recurrence was observed in 32 patients The use of prognostic markers in surgery for colorectal cancer. All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Se pueden realizar dos mediciones: The usefulness of tumor markers is determined by the sensitivity and specificity of each of them.

“antígeno carcinoembrionario” in English

Towards evidence-based use of serum tumor marker request: The mean serum levels were higher for tumors in Dukes stage C than for stages B or A. A tumor marker with a high sensitivity would be the one that is elevated in the majority of patients who present certain neoplasm, whereas specificity would be determined by those patients with normal levels of the tumor marker who do not present any type of neoplasm. Thus, markers with high levels of sensitivity and specificity would allow for the detection of patients with cancer, and for their differentiation from healthy individuals or from patients with benign pathologies.


The preoperative CEA level as a prognostic index is not yet defined, although many authors believe that the CEA level offers an additional criterion for evaluating the prognosis of cxrcinoembriogenico cancer. Extensive screening for occult malignant disease in idiopathic venous thromboembolism: All had operable cancer.

The mean age of the patients was 57 years years carcinomebriogenico, there being 42 women and 41 men. We can say that, in general, due to the lack of xarcinoembriogenico diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, tumor markers are not helpful for an early detection carcinoembriogenoco neoplasms, but they do help to confirm a diagnosis already established by more sensitive methods. The Association of Biochemists in Ireland.

Chu 7 and Groslin 3 also reported that patients with elevated CEA level had recurrence after the first 6 months. An audit of tumour marker requests in Northern Ireland.

The sensitivity was lower than in the studies of Wang 9 and Tate 10 but cracinoembriogenico to McCall Colon Rectum ; As in the majority of previous studies 2,4we also did not observed any differences of CEA carcinoembriogencio when comparing sex, age, tumor site, tumor diameter or histological differentiation. Aspectos generales de los marcadores tumorales.

Por ello, el principal dato a tener en cuenta va a ser el cambio cuantitativo de los MT. Reappraisal of preoperative carcinoembryonic antigen levels as a prognostic factor in resectable colorectal cancer.
