Evaluate body mass index (BMI), leptin, Leptin/adiponectin (L/A) ratio and cancer antigen (CA) 15-3 together as reliable biomarkers for breast cancer.


Consecutive patients aged between 40 - 60 years, with breast disease and informed consent.


Patients' Anthropometric and laboratorial characteristics classified by BMI in the group of cancer and patients with benign breast disease as well as biochemical tests of leptin, adiponectin,CA 15-3, hemoglobin, glucose low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC) levels were obtained as well as a blood sample to analyze CA 15-3 levels with a electrochemiluminescence immunoassay.


Using together leptin, L/A ratio, CA 15-3 and BMI could offer a reliable approach to detect high risk women to develop breast cancer.

Detailed Description:
Serum levels of leptin, adiponectin and CA 15-3, as well as anthropometric and biochemical parameters were analyzed in 88 female patients attending mammography study. Predictive values of BMI, leptin, L/A ratio and CA 15-3 were determined with 95% confidence interval (CI).
