Correlation between the mRNA levels of carcinoembryonic antigen and cytokeratin 19 in peripheral blood with staging, treatment response and prognosis in patients with lung cancer


, : Correlation between the mRNA levels of carcinoembryonic antigen and cytokeratin 19 in peripheral blood with staging, treatment response and prognosis in patients with lung cancer. Zhonghua Jie He He Hu Xi Za Zhi 28(11): 773-776

Objective To investigate the expression of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and cytokeratin19 (CK19) mRNAs in peripheral blood of patients with lung cancer and their correlation with staging, treatment response and prognosis. Methods CEA and CK19 mRNAs in peripheral blood were detected by Taq Man reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in 78 patients with lung cancer before and after treatment, 30 patients with benign lung diseases and 30 healthy subjects.

Conventional histopathologic staging of primary colorectal cancers does not allow accurate prognostic stratification within a given tumour stage. Therefore, PCR-based assays are increasingly used to try to predict more accurately the likelihood of...

Tumour markers in serum are of little use as a diagnostic tool for lung cancer. We hypothesized that induced sputum...
