Pancreatic Cancer Monitor Profile
CA 19-9, serial monitor report; carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), serial monitor report; lipid-associated sialic acid (LASA), serial monitor report
Monitor the course of pancreatic cancer, patient response to treatment, and disease recurrence
This profile should not be used as a diagnostic or screening test for cancer. The LASA procedure may be considered by Medicare and other carriers as investigational and, therefore, may not be payable as a covered benefit for patients.
See individual tests.
Red-top tube or gel-barrier tube
If a red-top tube is used, transfer separated serum to a plastic transport tube.
Causes for Rejection
Hemolysis; whole blood specimen
The account must submit the patient's Social Security number to monitor. State on the request form whether the patient is a smoker or nonsmoker. Values obtained with different assay methods should not be used interchangeably in serial testing. It is recommended that only one assay method be used consistently to monitor each patient's course of therapy.
This test may exhibit interference when sample is collected from a person who is consuming a supplement with a high dose of biotin (also termed as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R). It is recommended to ask all patients who may be indicated for this test about biotin supplementation. Patients should be cautioned to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
