In a check-up of 298 tumor-patient histories with gastrointestinal tract cancer at the UKE in Hamburg, a statistical correlation between tumor stage and cholesterol level was found: T1 = 250 mg/dliter, T2 = 214 mg/dliter, T3 = 201 mg/dliter, and T4 = 170 mg/dliter. Metastasis was observed at smaller levels than 185 mg/dliter and no progression was observed at levels higher than 245 mg/dliter. Similar results have been obtained from other authors for different kinds of cancer.
