In tumors characterized by a high osteotropism, such as multiple myeloma, the measurement of bone metabolism markers is helpful in monitoring both severity and prognosis of the skeletal disease. Here, we review the pathophysiology of these markers including tartrate resistant acid phosphatase (TRAcP), which appears highly specific and closely related to the extent of myeloma bone lesions.

Abstract

In tumors characterized by a high osteotropism, such as multiple myeloma, the measurement of bone metabolism markers is helpful in monitoring both severity and prognosis of the skeletal disease. Here, we review the pathophysiology of these markers including tartrate resistant acid phosphatase (TRAcP), which appears highly specific and closely related to the extent of myeloma bone lesions.
