Evaluation and comparison of hemocoagulation parameters both in serum and in ascites from patients with gynecologic malignancies
The Authors report the results obtained investigating PT -PIT -Fbg -Alcohol test - FDP -AT III in the serum and FDP in the ascitic fluid of 18 patients with ovarian cancer, 2 patients with pelvic relapse of cervical cancer and 10 patients with cirrhosis of the liver. It is pointed out the presence of FDP in the ascitic fluid in large amounts, so it not seems to be an ovarian cancer specific marker, but an aspecific marker of malignancy.
