AIM To determine whether the TKTL1 protein epitope detection in monocytes (EDIM) test allows detection of upregulated glucose metabolism in malignancies. MATERIALS & METHODS The EDIM-TKTL1 blood test was conducted in 240 patients with 17 different confirmed or suspected malignancies. Test scores were compared with (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG)-PET/computed tomography (CT) results. RESULTS EDIM-TKTL1 score and FDG-PET results showed a concordance of 90% with a sensitivity of 94% and… CONTINUE READING
