The aim was to measure the accuracy of pleural fluid HCY concentration for diagnosis of malignant pleural effusion (MPE). We studied pleural fluids obtained by thoracocentesis in patients with pleural effusion. Pleural fluid HCY concentration was measured by(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluate the utility of serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in combination with free-to-total serum prostate specific antigen ratio (%fPSA), for diagnosis of prostate cancer (PC) with serum total prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in the intermediate range of 4 to 10 ng/mL. METHODS The following variables were analysed: PSA, %fPSA, and LDH.(More)
