ICTP // C-Terminal Telopeptide of Type I Collagen

Biomarker Therapeutic Areas: 
Biomarker Matrices: 

In bone, type I collagen constitute 90% of the organic matrix. Markers of bone resorption in serum or urine can be used to assess changes in bone resorption in various bone diseases or under treatment (Naylor and Eastell, 2012). Degradation of collagen Type I in bone is mediated by two types of proteinases: cysteine proteinases and Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs). ICTP is the product of collagen I degradation by MMPs in opposition to CTX-I which is produced through the cysteine proteinase Cathepsin K action (Garnero et al., 2003). Serum ICTP is also a useful tool to identify patients with bone metastases (Tang et al., 2013; Voorzanger-Rousselot et al., 2006).

Bioclinica Lab employs a manual competitive radio-immunoassay for the measurement of ICTP in serum.
