CA 19-9 Information for Pathologists
Modified Lewis(a) blood group antigen secreted by or expressed on the surface of cancer cells. Used primarily as a serum tumor marker to screen for pancreatic cancer and to monitor effectiveness of therapy. However, only 50 - 75% sensitive for initial screening of pancreatic cancer and relatively nonspecific. Terminology Carbohydrate Antigen 19-9.
Notable Clinical Features:
Used primarily as a serum biomarker. As a serum screening test for pancreatic cancer, is more sensitive than CEA but less sensitive than CXCL8 (Pol Arch Intern Med 2018 Jul 27 [Epub ahead of print]). Used to screen for pancreatic cancer but has limited sensitivity and specificity. May also be elevated in patients with cholangiocarcinoma or colon cancer. Serum levels also elevated in cirrhosis, cholestasis and pancreatitis but values are usually below 1,000 U/mL.
