  • The levels of the three CTX isoforms α L, β Land α Dwere 2.3-fold to 2.7-fold higher in the postmenopausal women (Table 1), in accordance with previous reports of CTX levels during the menopause [ 15 ] . As all forms were elevated to the same magnitude in postmenopause, the ratios between the newly synthesised α LCTX form and the older β Land α DCTX forms was not significantly different in premenopausal and postmenopausal women.

  • This is in good agreement with kinetic studies of the isomerisation and racemisation reactions, where it was shown that the α DCTX form accumulates with the lowest kinetic rate [ 9 ] . The α L/α DCTX ratio will thus be most affected by changes of bone turnover processes influencing the half-life of collagen type I in the bone matrix.

  • When individual Z scores of CTX were calculated for the metastatic breast cancer patients compared with the non-metastatic patients, the α LCTX form and the α L/α DCTX ratio showed the highest average increases in accordance with the ability of the α LCTX levels and the α L/α DCTX ratio to most sensitively reflect alterations in the balance between the anabolic and catabolic processes of bone turnover (Fig.

  • The least prominent elevation was seen for the α DCTX levels.

  • For the β Land α DCTX markers, respectively, 47 and 48% of the metastatic patients had levels 2 SDs above the reference level of nonmetastasised controls (Fig.
