What is the Acid Phosphatase assay used for?
Acid Phosphatase is a type of enzyme which is used to free attached phosphate groups from other molecules during digestion.
In the past, Acid Phosphatase was used to diagnose prostate cancer. Nowadays, however, it is primarily used to evaluate the success of prostate cancer surgery; and to detect whether prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body particularly the bone.
