The diagnostic value of plasma carcino embryonic antigen in pancreatic disease

British Journal of Cancer 41(6): 976-979
The diagnostic value of plasma carcino embryonic antigen in pancreatic disease
While the plasma CEA [carcino embryonic antigen] levels in pancreatic carcinoma tend to be higher than in pancreatitis, knowledge of the plasma CEA level is of little additional value in the differential diagnosis of malignant and non-malignant pancreatic disease, and contributes little to the clinical management of such disorders.
