What can I learn from this test?

CA 72‑4 is mucine-like, tumour-associated glycoprotein. Elevated CA 72‑4 serum values are found in patients suffering from various benign diseases: pancreatitis, liver cirrhosis, pulmonary disease, rheumatic illness, gynaecological illness, benign ovarian disease, ovarian cysts, breast disease, and benign gastrointestinal tract disorders. The most important advantage of the CA 72‑4 marker over others is its particularly high diagnostic specificity for benign illnesses.

What can I test?

CA 72-4

Cancer antigen 72-4 (CA72-4) is a tumor-associated-glycoprotein (TAG-72) used as a tumor marker for gastrointestinal and ovarian cancers. Elevated CA72-4 levels in serum and plasma are seen in the pancreas, gallbladder, colon, cervix, and endometrium carcinomas. There is a correlation between serum CA72-4 levels and tumor stage/size compared to other commonly used biomarkers. CA72-4 is also an independent marker for the therapeutic monitoring and care of ovarian cancer patients who are CA125 negative.
