" related difficulties come up whilst one considers that many antigens present in malignant tumors percentage convinced homes with embryonic or fetal tissues. First, those observations emphasize an absence of real tumor specificity, for which cause the class of oncofetal antigens has been validated. moment, even if such antigens are actually oncofetal is determined by the strategy of detection used, and it's been came across that the following too specificity decreases because the antigen assay raises in sen sitivity. hence, no matter if components could be actually oncofetal in nature nonetheless continues to be a question of dialogue, and such phrases needs to for that reason be utilized in an operational sense.
