Abstract

Introduction: Ovarian cancer is one of the most common gynecological malignancies with high mortality rate. This high mortality rate may be due to delay in diagnosis. Using tumor-specific markers that are sensitive in the early stages of cancer is very effective to improve results of therapy. The aim of this study was evaluation of the diagnostic value of serum levels of Heat-shock protein 70 and CA125 in patients with epithelial ovarian tumors. Methods: This analytical study was conducted on 37 patients with epithelial ovarian cancer and 35 patients with benign ovarian masses in 2011-2012. Blood samples were taken from all patients before the surgery. Patients with ovarian cancer underwent cytoreductive surgery and tumor staging. Also, patients with benign ovarian masses underwent cystectomy or oophorectomy. Serum levels of HSP70 and CA125 were measured by ELISA and RIA, respectively. Finally, HSP70 and CA125 levels were compared before surgery between two groups. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 16 and Fisher, chi-square, t-student, Mann-Whitney, and ANOVA tests. P value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results: Mean age of patients with malignant ovarian cancer was significantly higher than the benign ovarian masses group (p<0.001). Pain was the most prevalent symptom in 62.5 of cases in both groups. Mean levels of CA125 and HSP70 were respectively 672.95±470.55 and 0.859±0.461 in patients with ovarian cancer. The mean levels of CA125 and HSP70 in epithelial ovarian cancer was significantly higher than benign ovarian masses group (p=0.025 and p=0.001, respectively). Conclusion: HSP70 along with CA125 can be useful for early detection of malignant ovarian cancers.
