Aim: Colon cancer is one of the most common and deadly cancers worldwide. Activated Leukocyte Cell Adhesion Molecule (ALCAM) has been found to be associated with various malignancies. We investigated the expression of ALCAM in colon cancer patients, as well as its association with tumor size. Materials and Methods: A total of 90 people, 50 patients with stage II colon cancer and 40 healthy controls were included in the study. Serum ALCAM and Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) levels were measured in both groups. Tumor size was evaluated in the patient group. Results: Circulating ALCAM levels were higher in patients with colon cancer than in the control group. Serum ALCAM levels were especially elevated in patients with larger tumor size. Conclusion: ALCAM is overexpressed in colon cancer, and these results suggest that serum ALCAM levels may have a predictive role in the prognosis of this disease.
