  • ultrasound
  • Therefore, it is strongly recommended that this patient, who is in her second trimester, undergo at least a flexible sigmoidoscopy, which is presumed safe during pregnancy, with or without a liver ultrasound and carcinoembryonic antigen detection based on pretest probability according to her other risk factors.

  • antibodies
  • Here, photostable QD-conjugated antibodies were utilized that bind CEA in human serum, previously blotted on a nitrocellulose membrane for point-of-care applications. (rsc.org)
  • As a result, the mother's body could develop antibodies against the Rh antigen. (findacode.com)
  • The patient's red cells are tested with anti-A and anti-B antibodies for the presence or absence of agglutination (forward type, aka cell type), and patient's serum or plasma is tested against known A and B cells (reverse type, aka serum type, aka back type). (findacode.com)
  • hypothesis
  • Evidence supporting this hypothesis was found in the biochemical characteristics of serum CEA and retrospective studies showing the superior predictive value of a dynamic threshold. (mdpi.com)
  • surveillance
  • A comprehensive review of the literature (1978-2008) demonstrates that the initial promise of serum CEA as an effective surveillance tool has been tarnished through perpetuation of poorly designed studies. (mdpi.com)
  • In 1982, Staab hypothesized that the optimal benefit of serum CEA as a surveillance tool is through high-frequency triage using a dynamic threshold (HiDT). (mdpi.com)
  • Methods
  • In the present study CEA was measured in serum using IRMA methods and in bronchoalveolar lavage of individuals undergoing fiberoptic bronchoscopy. (springer.com)
  • tests
  • To this end, low-cost, easy-to-apply stool- or serum-based tests with CRC-related biomarkers are either widely used or under investigation. (aacrjournals.org)
