beta-human chorionic gonadotropin

▀-hCG. A hormone normally found in the blood and urine during pregnancy. It may also be produced by some tumor cells. An increased level of ▀-hCG may be a sign of cancer of the testis, uterus, ovary, liver, stomach, pancreas, or lung. ▀-hCG may also be produced in response to certain conditions that are not cancer. ▀-hCG is being studied in the treatment of Kaposiĺs sarcoma.
