Interpretive Data

MESOMARK is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of soluble mesothelin related peptides (SMRP) in serum.  Measurement of SMRP may aid in the management of patients diagnosed with epithelioid or biphasic mesothelioma.  Epidemiologic studies have established exposure to asbestos fibers as the primary cause of malignant mesothelioma.  Results obtained with different assay methods or kits cannot be used interchangeably.  Results cannot be interpreted as absolute evidence of the presence or absence of malignant disease.

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purposes.
