A retrospective and prospective study of serial CEA determinations in the early detection of recurrent colon cancer.

Abstract

The results of the present study emphasize the importance of minimizing the time delay between a significant elevation in CEA and a second-look operation. Equally important are the frequency of serial determinations, a thorough understanding of the limitations of the assay, and careful evaluation of the clinical condition of the patient.
