Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a protein found in the blood of adults at low levels. CEA is basically glycoprotein that functions in cell adhesion. CEA is produced during fetal development from the gastrointestinal tissue. Because of the low levels during adult ages, it is used as a tumor marker in clinical tests after surgery or localizing cancer. Patients with colorectal carcinoma have higher levels of CEA (over 2.5 µg/L). Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels also rise because of gastric carcinoma, lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, and medullary thyroid carcinoma, as well as many other conditions.
Carcinoembryonic Antigen Test Strip is 99.3% accurate, has a relative sensitivity of 98.9%, and a relative specificity of 99.5%.
