Values of serum CEA levels patients with a decline in CEA

Six patients with elevated serum CEA at the time of study entry had declines in their CEA levels. Patients continued to have monthly CEA levels drawn until radiographic evidence of disease progression. The decline in serum CEA is statistically significant by one-tailed t test (P = 0.0066).
