  • Measurements of serum prostatic acid phosphatase concentrations (PAP) by radioimmunoassay (RIA) were compared with the conventional measurements of serum acid phosphatase activities using p-nitrophenylphosphate (pNPP, tot.) and magnesium thymolphthalein monophosphate (TMP) as substrates and L(+)-tartrate (pNPP, tr.) as inhibitor in five prostatic cancer patients before therapy and in 13 during therapy. Elevated serum acid phosphatase activities were detected in 2, 2 and 3 of the 5 untreated… CONTINUE READING
