Prostaglandin a in plasma of tumor bearing patients






Periodicum Biologorum 88(1): 25-30

Prostaglandin a in plasma of tumor bearing patients

A highly reproducible method of radioimmunossay was applied to assess prostaglandin A (PGA) content in plasma of patients suffering from Hodgkin's disease and breast cancer. Plasma specimens from patients with Hodgkin's disease were collected prior to splenectomy and plasma specimens from women with breast cancer were collected during adjuvant radiotherapy, that is, in the state of minimal residual disease. Elevated values of PGA were detected n plasma of patients suffering from either Hodgkin's disease (802.9 .+-. 120.4 pgml-1) or breast cancer (1212.0 .+-. 0.235.1 pgml-1) while almost normal ranges were observed in plasma of patients with chronic renal failure maintained on regular haemodialysis.
