The aim of the present study was to examine the physiological basis for the clinical use of serum PIIINP as a marker of the deposition rate of type III collagen. The assumption was that the serum concentration of PIIINP would reflect the turnover of type III collagen and thus directly reflect the inflammatory response. For the study we assessed commercially available RIAs and optimised one of them. Porcine PIIINP was purified and compared with human PIIINP. The application of a gentle… CONTINUE READING
