The tumour markers carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), ferritin, cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) and tissue polypeptide antigen (TPA) were measured by radioimmunoassay in sera from 80 patients with ovarian cancer pre-operatively, postoperatively, during cytostatic chemotherapy and on follow up. Discriminant analysis was applied to obtain retrospective classification of 60 patients into a group showing a favourable course of the disease (no recurrence, tumour regression) and into a group with an unfavourable course (recurrence, progression of the tumour). The classification was based on the introduction of the Cutting Score. By means of this bio-mathematical model it was possible to make at least a short-term prognostic statement in a further 20 patients. It is suggested that invasive diagnostic procedures may not be required in patients who are found to have normal tumour marker levels.
