Central nervous system (CNS) tumor markers that have been m easured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) include among others, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), glutamic oxalacetic transaminase (GOT), aldolase, phosphohexose isomerase (PHI), lysozyme, creatinine kinase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, adenylate kinase, the polyamines and desmosterol. Such markers have at least five possible functions in the diagnosis and management of CNS neoplasms: screening, diagnosis, classification, early prediction of… CONTINUE READING
