Reagents, Immunoassay, Tumor Marker, Hormone
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of a sample of body fluids (e.g., blood) to determine hormones secreted by neoplastic tumor cells (i.e., tumor markers), either as a result of an excess production by the endocrine tissue that normally produces the hormone or as a product of nonendocrine tissues that normally do not produce the hormone. Hormone tumor markers include adenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), calcitonin, growth hormone, and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).
