Monitoring of veno-occlusive disease after bone marrow transplantation by serum aminopropeptide of type III procollagen.

Abstract

Differential diagnosis of hepatic complications after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is often difficult. To assess whether serum concentrations of the aminopropeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) could facilitate diagnosis, we measured serum PIIINP, corrected for age by conversion to standard deviation scores (SDS), serially after BMT in 27 children… (More)
