Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein measurement in antenatal screening for anencephaly and spina bifida in early pregnancy.
Serum alpha-fetoprotein level per tumor volume reflects prognosis in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma after curative hepatectomy.
Alpha-fetoprotein ([alpha]FP), a paraprotein released from about 70% of all hepatocellular carcinomas, has previously been suggested as a surrogate marker for treatment response in HCC [7].
Other common markers include alpha-fetoprotein, present in about 90 percent of testicular germ cell cancers, and lactate deyhdrogenase, an enzyme that can also be a sign of meningitis, HIV and acute pancreatitis if elevated levels are present.
Suspicion arises in case of unexplained elevation of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) (4).
ALPHA-fETOPROTEIN bLOOD TEST The alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) blood test is performed at around the 16th week of pregnancy to measure the level of AFP in the mother's blood.
Animals that received pre-treatment with saffron displayed a decrease in the elevation of gamma glutamyl transpeptidase, alanine aminotransferase and alpha-fetoprotein (GGT, ALT, aFP)-proteins, which indicate liver damage.
Moreover, amniotic fluid can use for biochemical checking for several factors for instance, Alpha-fetoprotein (AFAFP), enzymes, hormones.
The serum level of lectin-reactive alpha-fetoprotein was also suppressed almost in parallel with VEGF.
The current blood test used to screen for early tumors in people at high risk for liver cancer involves a protein called alpha-fetoprotein (AFP).
