The meaning of fecal M2-pyruvate kinase at dispensary patients with colorectal cancer


Literary review with meta-analysis of 17 randomized studies devoted to screening of colorectal cancer is presented. Among them the most sensitive and specific is a method of finding out fecal pyruvate kinase in feces of M2 type. The research on definition of the role of cancerous fecal pyruvate kinase of M2 type among 32 patients with colorectal cancer after surgical and/or complex treatment is carried out. It is shown that in half of cases the concentration of pyruvate kinase at average is 0.52 U/ml. The significant excess in this level is the evidence of the return of the disease.
