Recent improvements in urine concentration techniques and assays suggest that urine hCG levels can be an even more sensitive method of monitoring germ-cell tumors Javadpour and Chen, Nontrophoblastic Tumor.
A large survey of hCG levels in various cancers has been made by Braunstein The incidence of immuno- reactive sera in patients with cancer is shown in Table VI. The clinical significance of the relatively small rises in hCG in cancers other than germ-cell tumors is unclear. Their data illustrates the correlations that can occur in other forms of cancer. Lung cancer is often associated with a small rise in the level of serum hCG.
For example, Blackman et al. Most values in this and other series Goldstein et al. Rising levels in sequential measurements are associated with tumor growth, but hCG levels can give discordant results. Human chorionic gonadotrophin has been included in batteries of markers used to discriminate tumors from nonmalignant conditions, but this approach is too expensive for routine use, and it is a weak discriminant.
Milk Proteins Four milk proteins, casein, lactoferrin, lactalbumin, and the sweat a2- globulin GCDPF , have been examined for their role in the diagnosis and monitoring of breast cancer.

- A Purple Place for Dying (Travis McGee, No. 3)!
Only 1 in 55 patients with benign disease showed an elevated level. More extensive studies Cowen et al. Bowen Fitzgerald et al. The levels of lactalbumin in the blood reflect breast activity, but it is not found in the tissue-culture fluid of breast- cancer cells grown in vitro or their cytosols and thus has no value as a potential marker of breast cancer Zangerle et al.
This line of research is an important exploration for potential markers. Unfortunately, none are sufficiently specific to warrant their regular use in monitoring breast cancer. Pseudouridine and Other Modified Nucleosides The methylated nucleosides are now readily separable and quantifiable by high-performance liquid chromatography HPLC , using reverse phase columns, in urine, serum, and amniotic fluid Davis et al. The release of methylated nucleosides is a measure of nucleic acid degradation; pseudouridine and the methylated nucleosides is a breakdown product of transfer RNA.
Indeed, urinary methylated nucleosides have been suggested as a good indicator of the effectiveness of chemotherapy Borek, Elevated levels of urinary nucleosides have been found in patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Nasopharyn- geal carcinoma is difficult to diagnose at the early stages, so a marker of this type could be useful Trewyn et al.
In the stable phase of the disease, levels were times normal, but in the blastic phase they reached up to 7 times normal. On the other hand, measurement of urinary nucleosides has been found to be of limited value in following the course of breast cancer Tormey et al. The measurement of methylated nucleosides has been slow to gain a large-scale investigation. This could be a result of the specialist skills required for the assay. Rapidly growing tumor tissue would be expected to produce large quantities of polyamines Russell and Durie, because the increased amount of ribosomal RNA during growth and proliferation is accompanied by increased polyamine synthesis.
Techniques for the assay of urinary and serum polyamines now include the use of automatic amino acid analyzers, gas-liquid chromatography, and thin-layer chromatography.

An indicator of polyamine release more sensitive than the methods mentioned above may be the assessment of erythrocyte polyamines. Erythrocytes serve as carriers for spermine and spermidine in the blood. Using an HPLC method, erythrocyte polyamines showed promising results as a monitor of response to therapy in disseminated prostatic carcinoma Killian et al. The only disadvantage at present in their widespread use is the lack of a rapid and inexpensive assay suitable for use in a routine laboratory. Russell and Durie have set out five major areas for the further evaluation of the clinical usefulness of polyamines; they are summarized as follows: 1.
Use of plasma spermidine to evaluate the effectiveness of drugs in killing tumor cells.
