Project: Value of the tumour marker CA 125 and its physiological role studied by radio-immunometric determinations of CA 125 in tissue extracts and sera from patients with malignant tumours.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
Concentrations of CA 125 in cancers of the female genital tract and in histologically normal tissues are studied and compared with serum CA 125 levels. In addition serum CA 125 concentrations in healthy women in various physiological and hormonal conditions (normal cycle, ovulation induction, menopause) are analysed. This study may gain better understanding of CA 125 as a tumour marker and give new insight in its physiological role.
