BACKGROUND: The development of bone marrow fibrosis is a severe complication in hematological diseases. The progress of bone marrow myelofibrosis is evaluated by a trephine examination and may be characterized by the biochemical markers of collagen turnover determination.
OBJECTIVES: Investigation of serum prolidase activity and biochemical markers of collagen metabolism in order to establish its role in the development of bone marrow fibrosis.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The group of 37 patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) before treatment, consisted of 16 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), 7 with primary myelofibrosis (PMF), 8 with essential thrombocythopenia (ET), and 6 with polycythemia vera (PV).
RESULTS: It was found that the plasma activity of prolidase (Pro) was reduced to almost half together with the serum level of osteocalcin (BGL), and hydroxyproline (H-PRO) in the serum and urine of patients with MPN in comparison to the control group. In the MPN group of patients, the levels of N-terminal procollagen III peptide (PIIINP), type I procollagen (PICP) and the C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (ICTP) were significantly higher.
CONCLUSIONS: The alteration of collagen turnover markers in the MPN patient group (the elevation of synthesis and inhibition of collagen catabolism rate) has suggested that a diminished prolidase activity may contribute to such alteration of collagen metabolism and should be consider a biomarker of MPN progress.
