Urinary excretion of sialic acid in patients with bladder tumors.

The pre- and post-treatment urinary total sialic acid/creatinine (TSA/Cr) ratios of patients with bladder tumor (n = 60) were determined. We found a significant increase in the mean urinary TSA/Cr ratio in patients with bladder tumors than in healthy people (99.80 +/- 15.60 micrograms/g Cr, 52.57 +/- 15.60 micrograms/g Cr, P < 0.001). We determined that the… CONTINUE READING
