Tumor markers and TNM classification
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  9797825     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Some tumor markers were demonstrated as being significant prognostic factors of cancer patients and are proposed to be included in the TNM classification. However, only serum ALP fulfils the criteria in patients with osteosarcoma. The author proposes the concept of "cancer related molecular markers," including circulating tumor markers and genomic changes. Their messages and products should be evaluated if it is a major independent prognostic factor of a cancer and its assay is easy and reproducible.
