The soluble cytokeratin 19 fragment (CYFRA) and pro-gastrin-releasing peptide (ProGRP) are recently described promising tumor markers for lung cancers. To assess their alterations in renal dysfunction, serum levels of CYFRA and ProGRP were determined together with conventional markers including carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC), neuron specific enolase (NSE) in patients with renal failure of varying degrees. The mean concentration of all these markers but NSE… CONTINUE READING
