Histochemistry of Alkaline Phosphatase in Cervical Neoplasia
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is a substance thought to participate in active transport. Formerly it was thought that only diseases of the bone, liver or bileduct result in a rise of serum ALP. However, owing to improved methods for the analysis of isoenzymes, e.g., electrophoresis and various inhibition tests, it is now possible to identify ALP isoenzymes originating not only in the bone or liver, but also in the small intestine or placenta.
