Correlation of urine type I collagen-cross-linked N telopeptide levels with bone scintigraphic results in prostate cancer patients.

Abstract

The diagnostic potential of a new bone resorption marker, type I collagen-cross-linked N telopeptide (NTx), for bone metastasis of prostate cancer was evaluated. Ninty-one prostate cancer patients underwent bone scintigraphy, and urine NTx/creatinine (NTx/Cr) was measured. Urine NTx/Cr levels were compared with bone scintigraphic results. Urine NTx/Cr… (More)
