Description

Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a major plasma glycoprotein seen in hepatocytes of fetal liver and in hepatoma. Elevated levels of AFP in adult serum may be indicative of hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatoid adenocarcinoma, germ cell tumors or yolk sac tumors. In hepatocellular carcinoma, AFP expression usually indicates malignancy in a hepatocellular nodule and hepatic histogenesis of a malignancy.
