Evaluation of serum 5' nucleotide phosphodiesterase isoenzyme v as a tumor marker in metastatic liver cancer

Journal of Tokyo Women's Medical College 57(1): 42-54
Evaluation of serum 5' nucleotide phosphodiesterase isoenzyme v as a tumor marker in metastatic liver cancer
5'-Nucleotide phosphodiesterase isoenzyme-V (5'-NPD-V) is an isoenzyme of 5'-NPD that splits nucleic acids to release 5'-nucleotide, and moves farthest to the anodic end in polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The author determined serum 5'-NPD-V level in total 400 patients with malignant tumors who were divided into preoperative (or non-resected) and postoperative groups, and evaluated the diagnostic utility of 5'-NPD-V for liver metastases. The diagnostic utility of 5'-NPD-V was then compared with that of serum CEA, .beta.2-microglobulin, ribonuclease, ferritin and .alpha.-fetoprotein. Patients with liver dysfunction or jaundice were excluded from the study because they exhibited a false positive response to the test. In the preoperative group, serum 5'-NPD-V test was positive in 64.3% of the patients with liver metastasis false positive in 4.5%, and the predictive value of a positive assay, denoting the presence of liver metastases, was 60%. In the postoperative group, the figures were 84.6% and 3.9%, respectively, and the predictive value was 64.7%. When CEA was used to conjunction with 5'-NPD-V, a positive response to either of the tests was exhibited by 85.7% (preoperative) and 92.3% (postoperative) of the patients with liver metastasis. From the above findings, serum 5'-NPD-V was considered to be a useful marker for the diagnosis of liver metastasis.
