Comparison of 10 serum bone turnover markers in prostate carcinoma patients with bone metastatic spread: diagnostic and prognostic implications.

Abstract

Our aim was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of bone markers in serum of patients with prostate cancer (PCa) for early detection of bone metastases and their usefulness as predictors of PCa-caused mortality. In sera of 117 PCa patients (pN0M0, n = 39; pN1M0, n = 34; M1, n = 44), 35 healthy men and 35 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia, bone… (More)
