Monitoring response to treatment Serum CA125 levels reflect progression or regression of disease in >90% of patients with ovarian cancer who have elevated preoperative levels (Bast et al. 1983, Hawkins et al. 1989b). This has led to wide application of CA125 measurements in monitoring response to chemotherapy and clinical course of the disease. From early studies on CA125 levels prior to second-look laparotomy, it is well established that the accuracy of an elevated CA125 is limited to 62–88% and values <35 U/mL do not exclude active disease (Jacobs and Bast 1989, Fioretti et al.
2001, Kishi et al. 2003), HK10 (Luo et al. 2001, 2003) HK11 (Diamandis et al. 2002) and HK13 (Scorilas et al. 2004). A multiparametric kallikrein expression profile may be a useful tool when used either alone or in conjunction with existing markers. Proteomic patterns In the new era of proteomics, in addition to individual markers, there has been a great deal of interest in identifying global patterns of serum proteins and peptides that relate to cancer risk. Serum, by its nature, can reflect organ-confined events and the pattern, rather than its component parts, is the diagnostic.
CA125 rises progressively with worsening grade. It was suggested that it may have a role in posttreatment surveillance of patients with early-stage endometrial cancer. However, levels can be falsely elevated in the presence of severe radiation injury (Rose et al. 1994) and isolated recurrences in the vagina do not cause elevation (Patsner et al. 1990). Recently, there have been conflicting reports about its utility in monitoring for recurrence in the absence of other clinical findings (Cole and Nam 1989, Price et al.
