Resumen

RUBIO BRIONES, J. et al. Usefulness of seum markers in renal cell carcinoma. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.5, pp.381-386. ISSN 0210-4806.

OBJECTIVES: To select a group of useful serum markers in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with investigational purpose in future. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Periodic determination in serum of 21 RCC patients of the following markers: EGR, RPC, hemogram and leucocyte differential count (LDC), standard biochemist parameters, ß-2 microglobuline, CEA, CA 12.5, CA 50, CA 15.3, ferritin, interleukin-6, serum interleukin-2 receptor, TNF- a and TPSA. RESULTS: Different elements within the LDC had relations with the presence of symptoms/signs, tumour size, pathological stage and disease progression. There was a significant increase of ß-2 microglobuline and sIL-2 receptor when disease progressed, as well as a similar statistical trend with RPC and alkaline phosphatases. ß-2 microglobuline and sIL-2 receptor also decreased after treatment of the disease progression. CONCLUSIONS: We will keep analysing hemogram, LDC and standard byochemics, RPC, ferritin, ß-2 microglobuline and sIL-2 receptor only with investigational purposes, obviating the determination of the rest of the tested markers.
