In contrast, we observed false-positive values for the cancer antigen 125 (CA 125), because of HAMA Interferences in samples from ovarian cancer patients treated with the anti-CA-125 antibody OC125, which could be corrected by preincubation with mouse IgG but not with MAK33 (4).
This was vastly superior to the 35% positive predictive value in the same samples of cancer antigen 125, the present gold standard clinical biomarker.
A case of benign multicystic mesothelioma of the peritoneum (BMMP) is presented uniquely characterized by an elevated serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA-19-9) and biopsy positive immunostaining for CA-19-9, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and cancer antigen 125 (CA-125).
Further testing protocols include at least a yearly transvaginal ultrasound scan and a serum cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) test.
The cut-off values for the tumor markers (according to the biochemistry laboratory in our hospital) were 0.5 IU/L for Human Chorionic Gonadotrpin (HCG), 35 U/mL for Cancer Antigen 125 (CA125), 37 U/mL for CA 19-9, 7 U/mL for alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and 214 U/L for lactate dehydrogenase (LDH).

The authors based the model on a panel of selected circulating protein biomarkers (cancer antigen 125 [CA125], carcinoembryonic antigen [CEA], cytokeratin-19 fragment [CYFRA 21-1], and the precursor form of surfactant protein B [Pro-SFTPB]) and compared its performance to a traditional risk prediction model and current U.S.
"Screening with cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) and transvaginal sonography (TVS) appears practical, but establishing the value of screening is challenging," they said.
The cancer antigen 125 level was high (280.7 IU/ml).
In fact, however, when average-risk women undergo screening--such as with transvaginal ultrasonography or a cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) test--many of those with abnormal results may undergo unnecessary surgery and experience resultant potential harm.
Cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) is a biomarker usually expressed at the atypical surface of the coelomic epithelium.
