Correlation Between Biochemical Parameters  
<< Back  
  This figure indicates a high degree of correlation between serum alkaline phosphatase and urinary hydroxyproline excretion (expressed as hydroxyproline/creatinine ratio) in a series of 197 untreated patients with Paget's disease. Note the close relationship between the two measurements over a 100-fold range of values (log scale). Upper limit of normal is 105 IU/L for alkaline phosphatase and 40 umol/mmol for hydroxyproline/creatinine.
