A review of the status of standardization of laboratory tests of particular interest to oncologists is presented. Currently, relatively few of these tests are standardized; as a result, interlaboratory and interinstitutional comparison of data is problematic. In 1992, additional interlaboratory studies of common tumor markers will be initiated by the College of American Pathologists. The National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards also has begun to develop standard methods and guidelines for these important tests.
