Abstract

Measurement of tumor markers level in human body fluids, mainly in serum may be useful for diagnosis, therapy monitoring and early recurrence detection. SCC-Ag, Cyfra 21-1, CEA, CA 125 and TPS are of a clinical value in uterine cervical cancer despite their diverse significance. Other biological markers that could be measured in serum as well as in tumor tissue are cytokines: VEGF, IL-6, IL-8, IL-4, IL-10, leptin, stromal drive factor (SDF-1), although assessment of their importance needs further examination. Elevation of uterine cervical cancer hypoxia markers such as HIF 1a, CA 9, GLUT- 1 is combined with poorer clinical outcome prognosis.
