In this study, the prognostic value of serum HE4 was investigated in patients with advanced ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal carcinoma. Serum HE4 and CA125 levels were measured in both patients and controls, and the response of treatment and the detection of recurrence were evaluated by serum HE4 and CA125 levels in the patients. The results showed that the levels of serum HE4 and CA125 were significantly higher in advanced patients than those seen in benign disease controls (pā€‰<ā€‰0.001). Compared with CA125, HE4 had higher specificity, but lower sensitivity. Furthermore, serum HE4 was closely associated with the response of treatment and recurrence, the effective response rate for therapy treatment showed by HE4 was higher than CA125, and a serum HE4 level was correlated with a sensitivity of 82.8% and a specificity of 99%, a positive predictive value (PPV) of 97.7%, and a negative predictive value (NPV) of 77.9% to show the presence of recurrence; the accuracy of HE4 for recurrence prediction after treatment was 88.6%. Our study indicated that serum HE4 levels are effective for diagnosis, evaluating the response of treatment and predicting recurrence in patients with advanced ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal carcinoma.
