Description

Human Epididymis Protein 4 (HE4) is used as an aid in monitoring recurrence of progressive disease in women with epithelial ovarian cancer. It should not be used for monitoring women with mucinous or germ cell ovarian cancer. Combining CA125 and HE4 provides a more accurate predictor of malignancy than either alone.
