OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of serum immunosuppressive acid protein (IAP) as a marker for lymph node metastases in patients with renal cell carcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Serum IAP levels were studied in 73 patients with renal cell carcinoma, prior to therapy. Serum IAP levels were correlated with the clinical and the post-operative histopathological stage. A threshold value of 800 micrograms/ml was applied. RESULTS Statistical analysis revealed a better correlation between IAP… CONTINUE READING
