Abstract

The aim of the present study was to identify predictive factors for cervical cancer (CC) progression using a multistage approach. The present study obtained data from 390 healthy women and 259 patients with cervical cancer between June 2012 and June 2017, and used a multiple stage re‑analysis strategy for clinical detection of CC. A total of seven types of serum indices were used in the present study, including sugar chain antigen 125 (CA‑125), sugar chain antigen 199 (CA‑199), α fetoprotein (AFP), carcino‑​embryonic antigen, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), cholesterol and triglyceride (TG). The expression levels of CA‑125, CA‑199, AFP, ALP, cholesterol and TG were significantly different between healthy women and patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Furthermore, ALP, cholesterol and TG expression levels were significantly different in healthy women compared with patients with cervical adenocarcinoma (AC). Further comparisons based on age and pathological staging demonstrated that the variability in the ALP level was not significant between the <40 years old age group and the 40‑50 years old age group within healthy individuals (P>0.05); however, was significant in patients with SCC (P<0.05). Staging analysis identified significant differences in ALP between healthy women and patients with SCC (Stage I‑IV), and significant differences between healthy women and patients with Stage I AC. The results of the present study indicated that the expression of ALP was significantly increased in patients with CC compared with healthy women. Therefore, ALP may be a potential predictive factor for the development of CC.
