Multiparametric Markers in the Monitoring of Cancer

  • E. H. Cooper
Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 67)


At the present stage of knowledge about the biochemical markers in common forms of cancer, the prospects of finding specific sensitive tumour markers look bleak. Whilst the search continues, others are turning their attention to how the markers that are presently available can be used optimally [4, 8, 10].
