Overview

Overexpression (protein) studies in ovarian cancer.

Performance Comment

Of the 28 ovarian cancer biomarkers tested in prediagnostic specimens, from the PLCO, CA125 remains the the single best biomarker for ovarian cancer and has its strongest signal within six months of diagnosis. CA72-4 alone was not a strong predictor.
