  • Background

    Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) is a 180-200 KD glycoprotein expressed at high level in the epithelial cells of the embryonic colon. The expression is stopped after birth. CEA serum content is low in normal population and only slightly elevated in heavy smokers. CEA level is increased in some types of cancer. However elevated CEA level not necessarily indicates neoplastic conditions, since high CEA expression has been observed in non-neoplastic conditions such as ulcerative colitis, pancreatitis and cirrhosis. CEA elevation is known to be affected by multiple factors. Therefore, CEA test is not reliable for diagnosis or screening of cancer.
