The alpha fetoprotein level was found to be high in this patient, but the other tumor markers were found to be normal.
Elevated serum alpha fetoprotein levels promote pathological progression of hepatocellular carcinoma.
In the article, authors Sharon Miller and Jeanne Isabel discussed things like amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling and alpha fetoprotein levels and neural tube defects and hCG -- hazy, abstract names to mothers, but important measurements to lab professionals.
The test involves measuring the amount of one or all three substances signifying pregnancy, such as alpha fetoprotein, in blood taken from a pregnant woman to determine the risk of giving birth to a fetus with Down's syndrome and other congenital birth defects.
Down's syndrome screening in multiple pregnancies using alpha fetoprotein and free beta hCG.
With the widespread use of testing a mother's blood for increased levels of alpha fetoprotein, now doctors can determine if a fetus suffers from spina bifida.
Liver transplantation should be offered to patients with small solitary hepatocellular carcinoma and a positive serum alpha fetoprotein rather thanresection.
PreeclampsiaScreen T1 is administered during the first trimester of pregnancy through a simple blood test to detect three biochemical markers in the mother's blood, namely pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, placental growth factor and alpha fetoprotein.
Further imaging showed 11 cm hepatic mass, with normal alpha fetoprotein.
Alternatively, a patient can opt for integrated screening, in which NT and PAPP-A are measured at 10-14 weeks, followed by the quad screen (serum alpha fetoprotein, hCG, unconjugated estriol, and inhibin A) at 15-16 weeks, and the results are given all at once as a single risk value; if the results are positive, amniocentesis is then offered to the patient.
