BACKGROUND M2 pyruvate kinase (M2PK) is an oncoprotein secreted by colorectal cancers in stools. This the first report on the accuracy of a rapid stool test in the detection of colorectal cancer (CRC). OBJECTIVE To determine the sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive value of a rapid, point of care stool test M2 PK- the M2PK Quick. METHODS Consecutive cases of endoscopically diagnosed and histological proven CRC were recruited. Stools were collected by patients and… CONTINUE READING
