Adenosine deaminase (ADA) and 2-deoxyadenosine deaminase (2-deoxyADA) activities were measured in pleural exudation of different origin in 373 patients (124 of these with serous tuberculous pleurisy and 75 with specific empyema). High diagnostic value of ADA activity in the presence of threshold value higher than 35 Units/liter was established: the(More)

The paper compares the characteristics of the informative value of tests determining the activity of adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity and the level of gamma-interferon (gamma-IFN) for the differential diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy (n = 35) and non-tuberculous pleural effusion (n = 53). Both tests were ascertained to have the similar differentially(More)
