Overview

Cíl: Cílem této studie je zhodnotit sérové hladiny mědi (Cu) a zinku (Zn) u pacientek s epiteliálním karcinomem ovaria a endometriomem. Materiál a metody: Do studie bylo zařazeno 21 pacientek s epiteliálním karcinomem ovaria, 47 pacientek s endometriomem, 31 zdravých žen v reprodukčním věku a 10 zdravých žen v menopauze. Byly porovnány hladiny Cu a Zn a poměry Cu/Zn. Výsledky: Ve skupině s endometriomem byly hladiny Cu (p = 0,04) a poměr Cu/Zn (p < 0,01) vyšší, zatímco hladiny Zn (p < 0,01) byly nižší ve srovnání s kontrolní skupinou. Prahová hodnota 1,15 s 62% senzitivitou a 61% specificitou byla vypočtena pro poměr Cu/Zn pomocí ROC křivky (AUC = 0,688; p = 0,005). Ve skupině s rakovinou vaječníků byly hladiny Cu (p ≤ 0,01) a poměr Cu/Zn (p = 0,02) vyšší, zatímco hladiny Zn (p ≤ 0,02) byly nižší ve srovnání s kontrolní skupinou. Prahová hodnota poměru Cu/Zn 1,37 byla vypočtena se 76% senzitivitou a 90% specificitou (AUC = 0,829; p = 0,004). Hladina Zn byla nižší (p = 0,02) a poměr Cu/Zn byl vyšší (p = 0,01) ve skupině s karcinomem ovaria ve srovnání se skupinou s endometriomem. Závěr: Prahová hodnota poměru Cu/Zn pro karcinom ovaria mohla být stanovena se specificitou 90 %, zatímco senzitivita a specificita poměru Cu/Zn pro endometriom byly nízké.

Klíčová slova:

karcinom vaječníků – měď – zinek – endometriom – poměr měď zinek
