An enzyme immunoassay for prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) has been assessed. An upper limit normal is set at 1.8 microgram/1. There is a very low incidence of raised levels in chronic diseases or cancers other than those of the prostate. Patients with well-controlled prostatic cancer have levels less than 1.8 microgram/1 and show little variation about their own mean. PAP can rise exponentially with a doubling time of 1-5 months. This assay is unlikely to increase the detection of asymptomatic… CONTINUE READING
