Serum concentrations of calcitonin, calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase were measured in 19 patients with osteolytic metastases and in 8 patients with osteosclerotic metastases from mammary carcinoma. A significantly higher mean S-iCT concentration was found in patients with osteolytic metastases as compared with those with osteosclerotic. No significant difference was found in S-calcium, S-phosphorus or S-alkaline phosphatase between the two groups.
