The CEA content in serum also depends on the tumor size, another reason for standardizing tumor size in RAID studies and evaluating tumor xenografts for antigen content, liberation of antigen into the circulation, and complexation of radioantibody in the blood. The almost undetectable CEA in hamster serum contrasts with the findings in patients with colorectal cancer who have elevated plasma CEA. Higher amounts of CEA in the plasma correlate well with the extent of metastatic spread, suggesting that antigen shed from the tumor gains greater access to the circulation once the tumor breaks through the serosal barrier of the colon.
