Deoxypyridinoline (Dpd), a crosslink product of collagen molecules found in bone and excreted in urine during bone degradation, has been described as a marker of bone turnover in metastatic breast cancer. In this study, the urine deoxypyridinoline/creatinine (Dpd/Cre) ratio was determined by enzyme immunoassay in urine samples from 116 women with breast cancer.
