Extensive studies have demonstrated that immune complexes represent an important affidable tumor marker with a significant value as diagnostic and prognostic indicator of malignant diseases. In this view, we have studied a group of 11 healthy donors and a group of 11 patients with gynecological malignancies, pre- and post-operatively. Blood samples stored at –30 °C were tested by a new competitive immunoenzymat1c assay (C3bi test). The. data obtained, showed significant differences between healthy donors and tumor patients (p < 0.001). Furthermore it is notable that the results obtained pre- and post-operatively could be proved with further longitudinal studies.
