Fecal tumor necrosis factor-alpha and calprotectin as differential diagnostic markers for severe diarrhea of small infants.
Among these is a test for fecal tumor M2 pyruvate kinase (M2-PK) activity (4).
To estimate the potential impact of degradation of tumor M2-PK on the diagnostic accuracy of the test, results of stability testing were used in combination with fecal tumor M2-PK activities measured in 65 CRC patients (26 with colon cancer and 39 with rectal cancer) and in 917 unselected older adults.
