The immunoreactive protein for the tissue inhibitor of the metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 and -2 as well as for the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and -9 was quantified from the sera/plasma of 90 lung cancer patients and 20 control subjects with enzyme linked immunoassays (ELISA) using specific monoclonal antibodies. Free MMP-2 and that bound to the(More)
We investigated the prognostic value of the serum markers of type I collagen synthesis (PINP and PICP) and degradation (ICTP and CrossLaps) in 143 lung cancer patients with a local or locally advanced disease or a metastatic disease. The mean values of ICTP, CrossLaps, PINP and PICP were significantly higher in patients with bone metastases than in those(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between type I collagen degradation marker ICTP, MMP (matrix metalloproteinase)-9, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 and to compare their value as prognostic factors in lung cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN From the sera of 141 lung cancer patients, we assessed markers of type I(More)
