Abstract

The authors investigated 10 free amino acids, LDH, pyruvic acid and the levels of glucose in mucus of the cervix of patients in cases of gradually malignisation. We could show that the levels of all free amino acids are lower in cases of invasive carcinomas than in cases with dysplasias. LDH and pyruvic acid had an higher level in cases invasive carcinomas. We found no differences in cases of dysplasias and normal patients cervical mucus.
