IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Tumor Marker, Carbohydrate Antigen MCA
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum) to determine MCA (i.e., mucinlike carcinoma-associated antigen), a carbohydrate-related tumor marker. The detection of the tumor marker MCA is mostly used in monitoring therapy and disease progression in metastatic breast cancer and not to diagnose primary breast cancer. The levels of MCA typically correlate to those of the CA 15-3 tumor marker.
