CEA Testing Market Is Influenced by Technological Breakthroughs That Aids in Revealing the Genetic Basis of the Disease

CEA Testing Market - Industry Analysis and Forecast upto 2019


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2016 -- Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a protein usually produced in the developing fetus and disappears or is absent in adults. Abnormal amounts of this protein may lead to cancer. CEA test is performed to measure the level of proteins and check for the recurrence of colon and other cancers in patients already diagnosed with cancer. The normal accepted range of this protein is 0 micrograms to 0.25 micrograms per liter. Elevated levels of CEA in the patients recently treated for cancer, indicates recurrence of the cancer.

These elevated levels are attributed to different types of cancers and other conditions such as cholecystitis, lung infection, heavy smoking, inflammatory bowel diseases, peptic ulcer, etc. High levels of CEA are also found in the patients who are not diagnosed with cancer which might increase the risk of acquiring cancer. Hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin), infection, dizziness and excessive bleeding are some of the risks associated with abnormal levels of CEA. The abnormal levels of CEA in the body can be detected by using arcitumomab a monoclonal antibody; these are commonly used in the identification of glycoprotein expression in tissue samples.
