Bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP) shows potential as a marker of bone formation in the dog. Recent studies have indicated that serum BALP may provide a useful, non-invasive indicator of skeletal health in dogs, and as a diagnostic and prognostic marker in the management of dogs with musculoskeletal or metabolic disorders. Two assay techniques (one based on wheatgerm lectin precipitation followed by a simple enzymatic reaction, the second on a specific enzyme-linked immunoassay) were… CONTINUE READING
