In 55 patients with malignant melanoma, in addition to hematologic parameters and blood chemistry, serumferritin was measured by a two-site IRMA-technique using a heterologous antibody system (Behringwerke). Tumor localisation was exactly classified due to a staging system (stage I--III). Elevation of serumferritin values in stage III was highly significant (p less than 0.0005) compared to stage I and II, as well as to normal controls (n = 60). There was no significant correlation between… CONTINUE READING
