Abstract

The first reported methods of measuring urinary creatine phosphokinase activity and demonstrating histochemical tumor localization are described. Sixty-eight patients with and without malignant genitourinary tract disease were examined. Enzyme activities over 6 mU. per milliliter correlate well with the presence of malignant disease. Problems of assaying urinary CPK activity are discussed.
