CEA-like material was found in 51 of 62 primary human breast carcinomas and in only 2 of 12 fibroadenomas.

Levels of CEA-like material showed no significant correlation with carcinoma stage, grade, cellularity, size or histologic type. Levels, however, correlated inversely with lymphocyte infiltration.
