Description

Use:

Cancer antigen (CA) 27.29 breast cancer blood test is a highly sensitive tumor marker used to monitor breast cancer. It is serially monitored during therapy because of direct correlation to changing clinical status of the cancer.

Manage patients with metastatic carcinoma of the breast. CA 27.29 is a highly polymorphic glycoprotein belonging to the mucin family and is the product of the muc-1 gene. It is most useful using serial measurements to monitor both the course of disease and response to therapy because the direct correlation of changing levels of CA 27.29 with clinical status. In patients with known metastases, a reduction in levels of this marker indicates a good response to treatment while increasing levels indicate resistance to therapy and progressive disease and justify further clinical evaluation and regular monitoring.

It has also recently been shown that an elevation of CA 27.29 levels above the upper limit of normal in patients with no clinical evidence of disease is an early indicator of recurrence. An elevated serum CA 27.29 level in patients in remission of stage II or III breast cancer provided a positive predictive value of 83.3% for recurrent disease, with an average lead time of 5.3 months before recurrence was clinically established.

Recommended For:

Monitoring therapy for breast cancer, assessing for metastasis.
