CEA-like material in cytosols from human breast carcinomas. Correlation with biochemical and pathologic parameters.

Abstract

CEA-like material was found in 51 of 62 primary human breast carcinomas and in only 2 of 12 fibroadenomas. Levels of carcinoma CEA-like material correlated weakly with cytoplasmic estradiol receptor levels, total cytosol estrogens, and cytosol progesterone. 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.
