Among well-known circulating melanoma markers 5-S-cysteinyldopa (5-SCD), a precursor of pheomelanin biosynthesis and S-100 beta (S-100B) are extensively investigated. Our earlier observations confirmed that serum concentration of 5-SCD and S-100B correlates well with the stages and progression of the disease. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional inflammatory cytokine implicated in advanced stage of various diseases and tumour recurrence. Malignant melanoma cells are known...

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the diagnostic performance of a high-sensitive thyroglobulin (Tg) immunoradiometric assay (BRAHMS Tg-S) in the follow-up of papillary and follicular thyroid cancer patients treated with total/nearly total thyreoidectomy and radioiodine ablation therapy. During TSH suppression serum Tg concentration was measured 6 weeks prior to the radioiodine ablation (onT4-Tg before ablation) as well as 3 months following treatment (onT4–Tg a...
