Title:
Isoenzymes of Alkaline Phosphatase -- Useful Parameters for Identification of Bone Metastasis in Prostatic Carcinoma? 
Abstract:
Summary Background: The most frequent sites of metastases in prostatic carcinoma are bones. Bone scintigraphy is the diagnostic tool of first choice for staging bone metastases in cancer of the prostate. But this examination is expensive and time-consuming.Therefore we are looking especially for serum parameters like alkaline phosphatase, the isoenzyme of bone-specific alkaline phosphatase, and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to replace bone scintigraphy for diagnostic staging.
