The present investigation was conducted to determine serum levels of basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF) by enzyme immunoassay in patients with various urogenital tumors. Renal cell carcinoma had a higher tendency (28 of 52, 53.8%) toward increased serum levels of basic FGF than any of the other urogenital tumors, and increased serum basic FGF was detected more frequently in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma. Analysis of histological pattern indicated that renal cell carcinoma with a… CONTINUE READING
