Abstract

The CEA test is of value as an adjunct in the diagnosis and management of patients with neoplastic disease, especially when the values are obtained from a series of specimens and show a consistently inreasing or decreasing trend. However, all existing applicable tests must continue to be used. Present experience does not warrant recommending the use of the CEA assay as a screening test to detect cancer in the general population.
