Examining Change in CA-125 Over Time to Identify Ovarian Cancer Earlier

In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, researchers report that a new approach to monitoring CA-125, using an algorithm that looks at its change over time, is more effective at identifying ovarian cancer earlier than using a single-threshold number.

The researchers also suggest that this approach may be useful in screening for other cancers in which biomarkers are available.
